Default My 4 o'clocks need their time adjusted

I have a bunch of 4 o'clocks that don't seem to have a clue what time it is.

They bloom early in the morning (around 6:30 a.m.) here in Mississippi (Central Time zone).

Is that typical?

Maybe the seeds that I bought were designed for Europe or somewhere a different part of the world.

Maybe they think they're supposed to bloom at 4am and are getting as close as they can?

I believe it's cooling temps that cause them to open -- usually in the afternoon, but if your nights have been hot, slowly cooling a little toward morning that might account for it?

I think you are right. We have had some hot nights and relatively cool early mornings lately.

Thanks.
