Light will help them bloom. Frost can kill some. I think the big thing (I have 100 or so species) is wetness when it's cool or cold. Something practical is NOT transplanting them too soon. If the roots are all packed together there's less chance for rot. So if it rains more than once per week in coo...

Agaves will work well; out here we generally used the yellow striped one and it's becoming very popular since it doesn't need much water.
