C. Myrtle showing signs of Fall already

I have a couple of them in containers here in NYC. I noticed that some of the leaves are starting to change to their Fall colors. Isn't it too soon? The lowest temp we had here so far has been 56 degrees. Today near 70. Is it because they are in containers? My large one in the ground has not changed colors yet. Usually it starts late October. Should I bring those containers indoors now?

I'm in NC, and some are starting to change color and some are still green. My big maple is starting to show color. It's not the daytime temps that trigger color change so much as daylight length and nighttime temps.
