Under normal circumstances the foliage withers and detaches from the tuber as the plant's internal metabolism reacts to
changes in temperature, photoperiod, and passage of time.  This is what I would regard as normal dormancy.  This fall
we had an unusually rapid drop in temperature here, and my plants were suddenly frozen down while they were still in
active growth.
