Here is the (very quick) reply from Dr. Shengrui Yao:

Hi Jay,
Winter hardiness is one thing and the other issue is the frost free days-length of growing season. If you season is too short, most cultivars could not be fully mature.
To me, the frost free days is more critical than winter low temperature in your area. But you can get 1-2 cultivars and try it.
Happy Holidays!

Shengrui


Regards,

Jay
