I love, love agave plants. Will they thrive in FL, more specifically zone 9?

I am considering a home project and would like to use these plants. However, I want to make sure it is the right climate as it rains frequently here.

Many Agave species are surprisingly widely adapted. Some of my favorites are A. attenuata and A. bractiosa. They struggle here in AZ because they like a little shade and our summers are just too brutal. What is absolutely essential is good drainage! If you plant them where the ground is soggy or too shady they're gonners.
