Mine too. The flower spike, now more than 8 feet (about 2.5 meters) tall, 
was bent nearly horizontal. I found an extra tomato cage and managed to 
slip that over, we'll see what happens.

But the flowers on ours are definitely fragrant, as were all of the ones 
in the population from which this one came (now covered with concrete).
