Why is my 'Rose Queen' flopping?

I have a few kinds of salvia, and none of them have ever flopped until 'Rose Queen' this year. I planted it last year and it was fine, but this year it's done the old spread-and-sprawl. It has enough space and sun. Is there anything I can do? Thanks.

I think that x sylvestris, along with other similar Salvias and their hybrids, tends to flop. I have a nemorosa that does, so I have it planted next to something that can give it some support.

I thought x sylvestris and nemerosa were the same thing...? I have 'May Night' and 'Blue Hill' and neither of them flop. Are they not of the same type? Thanks.
