I always cut my Annabelle down to 24" in the spring. When it is in bloom and it rains the blooms flop and never bounce back up. I need ideas for reasonably inexpensive supports. Thx.

Welcome! Honey I have a Annabelle but, it's still a baby . But, I used a tomato cage for my Invincible Spirit when
I still had it . They sell square ones and it worked very well Smiling

Welcome! How much do you cut off to get them down to 24"? Have you tried just deadheading them and not cutting further down? They tend to get smaller flower heads and not flop as much if you leave the stems longer, although 24" is not that short for 'Annabelle'. Are they in a lot of shade?
