Don't know what triggered bloom.  Had a cold and wet Dec. and Jan.  Temps didn't get below 25F during that period, still is usually too cold for rebloom.  It is out in the middle of a field, no extra lighting at all.  Noticed that there are more and more seedlings (especially from Mtn. Sunrise) that seem to be able to make it through cold weather.  Return To Bayberry will send up stalks in Nov., go dormant through the cold in Dec, Jan and Feb then the same stalks bloom in early March.  We might be on the verge of cold hardy blooms....will have to wait and see.

It must be nice to get bloom this early. Any ideas of what may be
triggering bloom stalk starting in Jan?

Is there any security or street lighting nearby?
what is day and night temperatures in the few weks preceding starat of
bloom stalk?

This is out of Mtn. Sunrise by a complicated cross.....Was
planted in the ground as a new seedling a year ago this April, this is
its third bloom cycle since. This stalk appeared in Mid Jan. and has
fought through many frosty nights. Flower is a bit damaged, kind of a
strange rim on it, still debating if I like it or not. 3 branches,
spur terminal, 9 buds. enough vigor to have 7 increases at the moment.
