Nerine Eos not going dormant

It is early summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. Every day the 
leaves of my indoor sarniensis hybrid nerines look more bedraggled. 
Some are still green, but drooping down the outside of their pots. 
They are starting to dry. Two, however, have leaves lushly green and 
standing bolt upright.  I've just checked the labels and they are 
both Eos, that I bought last fall (autumn). They are right in the 
middle of my small collection, and have not been treated differently 
to the rest.

Does Eos remain green year round?  Or will it die down later in the summer?
