TB: terminals killed

This has been another very mild winter here and the third one with no
week of 80 degree temperatures in March, followed by a plunge to the low

Was out checking the new plantings from last year, and terminal
buds/stalks/fans have been killed on nearly everything from last year,
exception being Schreiner & Riverview imports.  Biggest surprise has
been SUNSET SNOW - seems to be doing fine here, with no winter damage.
I thought it was supposed to be weak?  Maybe it's mislabeled.  Or maybe
it isn't weak, just a slow grower.

I thought I would try some different blood lines, just to see how they
would do, so am not surprised by how many lost terminals, just
disappointed.  Lots of new fans on some of them, so am keeping my
fingers crossed for 'late' bloom on increase.  Spring bloom on winter

Neil, you have mentioned the desirability of this kind of bloom.  I
wonder if this trait is related to west coast/mild climate rebloom?
Have you been compiling a list?
