Been able to grow cascade, centennial and magnum in S.C.
Have to water them a lot though. That L Nino bi3ch or whatever has been holding the rain back for the past several years during the summer. If I ever run across that bastard... gonna knock the hell out of them.
Where's the third person voice? You been drinking again?
+1 to Centennial and Magnum, very robust in hot conditions and disease resistant. On the other hand, my Sterling has sucked hind teet for the last two years. Susceptible to spider mites and jsut generally weak.
Keep in mind that if you plant different varieties, keep them well separated. Mine were five feet apart and they are already starting to grow into each other after two years.
