    They will find dormancy if they want it. I grew sarrs, and VFTs on my windowsill for a few years, and they went through dormancy. The ONLY thing that changed was the photoperiod, one never went in to dormancy, and it's still alive today.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Dave,
    You live in San Francisco. You are about as far north as Norfolk, Virginia. You have a winter, with a proper photoperiod. People growing Sarrs south of their native habitat have a different set of conditions to those living in temperate zones. They must force the plants into dormancy or they will loose them within a few years.
