Default South Carolina Hops, any advice?

has anyone had problems with the heat in the south, and does growing in partial shade help for summer months? I've got some cascade bines over 18 feet tall and they were planted on April 15th. i've got them on an automatic timer that waters them twice a day for 20 minutes. i'll post pictures soon.
