Does anyone know of a way to prevent bare stems on old milkweed?

5 years ago

All of my milkweed plants have ended up looking like this (3 tropical, 1 butterfly milkweed). This is after growing outside all year:

Does anyone know of a way to stop the plants from dropping most of their leaves, or alternatively, cause new growth? (I’ve noticed that leaves would periodically turn yellow and drop off throughout the year.)
