When you say "shutdown," what do you mean? Pause growth?

In the case where I bring it to my parents' place in NH, it is above 50F most nights (but not necessarily all nights) by Memorial Day and through until late September, and I'd be able to overwinter it in a house that is kept above (but close to) 50F. So pause/slowing seems fine (although something that was a bit more resilient would be better), but a more impactful 'shutdown' would be more damaging.
