My beautiful hollyhocks grow so tall they become too heavy and droop down. Staking them seems to ruin their appearance. Is there a way to have them grow shorter and fuller? Is there a better way of staking them? I use iron posts behind the hollyhocks, tie them to the post, but then they look all bunched together. Any ideas? Thank you so much!

I sometimes individually stake my hollyhocks. Some years they just are heavier and taller then others.
Planting in an area where the wind does not effect them can also help.
