KarenB,
Welcome back to the forum. The winds blew pretty good out here in the San Gabriel Valley. A few of my plants toppled over. I was fortunate that there was no damage. My plants are getting ready for the winter, leaves turning yellow and falling off.
Hope you find a solution to save that 6 footer. Good luck!
-Rick
