I grew some last year and they fried in mid-June.
I'll be trying again in a different spot with more water and I will be using shade cloth as soon as it gets hotter. Right now they are about a foot tall.
I think the key will be getting them to survive 1 year and not focus on growth. I may even cut them back to keep the sun frm drying them out.
I chose Cascade and MT Hood because they are eary bloomers.
I will, if necessary, pull them out and have my Mom tend to them 25/7.
I am also trying to grow them on some land in the Christopher Creek area, but those are not in the ground yet.
