Growing Cyps in Kyushu, Japan

Hello Everyone,

I currently live in Fukuoka, Japan on the island of Kyushu. Our climate here is very much like Atlanta, GA with a couple exceptions:

1. We don't get the extreme low temperature fluctuations in winter here; rarely below minus 2 Celcius;
2. Spring is cooler but fall is a bit warmer, otherwise overall mean temperatures are fairly similar;
3. There is a distinct rainy season in June and early July and then typhoons in the late summer, rainfall is about 350mm more here annually.

Given all this information, what Cyp species do you think could possibly be grown here? I'm interested in trying C.formosanum and C. japonicum. Any other species likely? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sincerely, Tom Velardi
