Nice tree and questions...

Will your tree is impressive! I have a dwarf Meyer's lemon that had some nice blooms maybe a month ago.
My citrumelo is still in the stick stage...it is maybe three feet tall. I have noticed that it lost all of its leaves over the winter for the past two years. I am in an 8A zone, but this past winter it was near a 9A.
I don't think it is the cold that we have experienced. Do citrumelos have a tendency to lose their leaves in the winter until they get some size on them? Mine was flushing new leaves about a month ago until we had a weird night in the low thirties or so. It is in full sun if that is a factor. Thanks in advance!
