Tuberosa does not have to go dormant if you keep it warm enough. If it does keep it on the dry side but not too much. I think it will start going dormant in the 50s. I tend to have problems at this point with them, I have lost several due to dormancy. I would recommend that you try to keep it going. If you do loose branches new ones will start to sprout up. Keep it warm and let them grow.
