Plants that need no staking

I thought we had a thread at one time of plants that needed no staking despite their height. But can I find it, can I whing! Can anyone help? Or can we use this thread for listing them again? Please!

    I know short plants are no bother but there were a lot of tall plants listed in the thread that did stand up under their own steam - but I am dam*ed if I can find it!

    This thread mentions tall plants that require no staking, although the conversation does seem to drift into "the Chelsea chop" haha. Hope that helps image

    Thank you so much. I tried all sorts of combinations and could not find it!

    Rudbeckia Goldsturm copes well here without being staked. I never stake Digitalis - even if they flop or go wonky, they look fine whereas staking them looks all wrong. Verbena bonariensis is quite tall and doesn't need staking, and of course there are loads of tall grasses - you'd never stake them.

    The tallest in my garden that need no staking are Aconitum, Liguria, Sanguisorba (I think it's S. Obtusa), and Acatae.
