OK, here's the deal. I can only truly relate to a western exposure. When we start talking about a SE, a NE, a NW.........well, you see. Everything gets kind of muddled. What may be too intense, too hot in a pure western exposure, may be tolerable in a NW exposure. You might want to just put a thermometer inside that window, positioned a foot from the glass, and see how hot it really gets. I have a temperature monitor outside my front door, against the brick facing, and the door faces true-west. When the outside temperature at 5:00 PM is 90F, the temperature on the brick at my front door registers 120F. There's the problem. Only checking the temperature will tell you. Plant damage comes from those infra-red rays, and a thermometer gives an indication of that.
