Default Growing Hops In Florida?

I'll be moving to the Boca Raton/Boynton Beach area, nearish to West Palm, kind of in southeast Florida, and I am curious about the prospect of getting some hops started down there. I know that it can potentially be problematic because of the amount of sunlight per day, but are there any practices I could employ to make it at all possible? Are there any particular types of hops I could grow that might lend themselves to a more tropical climate than here in Seattle?

Just planted 8 Cascade myself. I am in northern Florida. There is a discussion thread on growing in Florida here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f92/hop-...florida-52264/
