Well, Ceres, I find most all the tall geraniums I grow flop...well,
what they really want to be is weavers and do best where they can
sort of grow up into and around other, taller plants.  In that
situation, you don't really notice the fact that once bloom starts,
the stems want to be horizontal because they end up woven into
everything else.  They will sort of climb up through low shrubs and
peep out.  As individual plants you get flop.
