Growing Hops in Central Texas ?

Has anyone had luck "good or bad" growing hops in central Texas?
I want to try and grow my own hops for my brews but I read they dont do to well out of the range of 35-55 degrees latitudes do to the shorter day light hrs here. I will try and grow them anyway but wanted to know if they will produce hops? What would be the best to grow here? I was thinking of Cascade or Ahtanum mid range alpha acids? Roy

Central Washington grows tons of hops and they have much shorter days than Central Texas let me tell you. Except in the summer, then Central Washington has much longer days.
