Answer: This is a tough one. There may be varieties that have been bred to be sturdy enough not to bend under their own weight, but when they catch the rain, it's hard to keep them from hanging to the ground. I haven't been able to find a solution to this problem anywhere, unfortunately. You might find it helps to train your peegee to a tree form. Choose a young shoot and tie it to a stake. Pinch off any side shoots that develop until the trunk reaches 4 to 6 feet tall, then pinch the top bud to promote side branches to form from there. You'll eventually end up with a fountain-shaped treelike shrub, and then the dangling blossoms will be a treat instead of a problem. I hope this helps!
