Peach Trees still Dormant

I'm in northern Florida and I'm new. I hope someone has some answers for me.

I planted two low-chill peach trees (FlordaSun variety) in January. They are about 5 feet high.

They have not yet broken dormancy, and I'm wondering if that's normal. The buds are still tightly closed.
The branches are showing some greenish color so I know they're not dead.

I planted other fruit trees and shrubs about the same time, and they've all begun leafing out. But not the peaches.

What gives?
