Sometimes the flowers are too heavy for the stems and they tend to flop over, especially after a rain or when watered from overhead. You can stake the stems up or just accept the plants the way they are. Too much nitrogen fertilizer and not enough sunshine can make the stems thin, as well so make sure you are not feeding your Shasta daisies and provide as much sunsine as possible. Enjoy!
