The most heat tolerant is ‘Jersey Knight’ or ‘Purple Passion’, however, it will be a challenge that first year.

But if it helps, I have grown that species (24 plants) successfully up here in Dallas. We typically cut our first spears the end of February and cut dailey until we are sick of them usually around June 1st. I compost heavily in the fall and cut the plants down once they have all turned brown.
