Will Canterbury Bells, Exh. Daisy, etc. take Southern heat?

Tuskegee, AL(Zone 8a)

Once again wondering if I can enjoy the same flowers I grew in the north now that I am in the sweltering south Alabama long-summer heat - z8b doesn't really describe it sufficiently.

Does anyone know? I believe they're listed as surviving to z8 and cooler, but I really don't want to nurse more plants that just can't make it here, and I'm in the midst of my seed buying for the spring.

I'm also considering Exhibition Daisy (very frilly). It's listed as surviving into zone 10, but I never see daisies thriving here..........
