Maybe that's the case then:

I guess I just never noticed that the buds swelled during December before.
I'm just a little mad that the two others near here are both about 80% green, and mine lost about 80% of it's leaves in November. Ron and others said something about Sweetbays getting 2 sets of leaves.
What's worse - mine normally had a good 70 - 75% of it's leaves right through winter. When I bought mine about 4 years ago, I deliberately bought the australis type (the southern evergreen form). Each winter it seemed to do better and better at being evergreen, then last Feb it lost all its' leaves. Now, it even lost all it's leaves before winter really even started. It's going in the opposite direction I had hoped for!
