CULT: SDBs and mild winters

It's turning out to be a strange year for SDBs.  I've e-mailed Barbara
Aitken about Dot Com and apparently the terminal buds also opened with four
falls for them.  She reports that for some, it appears to be genetic but for
others, she is attributing it to the weather, possibly mild winters.  We
have also had an unusually mild and short winter.  It appears to only affect
terminal buds -- all other blooms on the stalk are normal.

So far, only Smell the Roses, Dot Com and Peach Petal Pie have done this and
only for some stalks.  The majority of SDBs are behaving normally.

Anyone with mild winters grow SDBs?  What is your experience?
