Fascinating Cleome Blossom Behavior

Strange that I didn't study this with last year's blossoms, but I noticed that in the morning the petals were nicely unfurled, but at 11:00 they were starting to curl up, and at about 2:10 they were tightly curled. When the sun goes down they will unfurl - at least they did so yesterday! Click on "next" to see how the petals opened up by evening!

So they really don't like the heat. I wonder if mine are going to bloom with the triple digits we are having. Maybe I should move them again to a shadier spot.
