I'm not familiar with any plants that would be dormant in the middle of summer. I suppose someone could force dormancy for shipping, but after being moved to a hospitable environment, the should start growing almost immediately. This is an article that will tell you more about dormancy: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/plant-dormancy.htm
P.S. I would be suspicious of anyone who's selling dormant plants at this time of year. If they grow and all is well, I'd love to hear about it.
