We've only been in Charleston since January, but we have three year old Willamette, Kent and Cascade plants that are doing ok right now. Hops tend to not like the heat as much, but ya never know.
Keep in mind wherever you plant them, their roots like to grow out more than down. So, don't plant them where you have other plants you want to keep. They'll rule to ground.
Ours are in self-watering 5 gallon containers. This has definitely kept them smaller than we'd hoped, but we don't want to plant them directly in the ground until we find a house to buy.
