I treat them them as tropicals... for now all of mine are in containers in a cool greenhouse... tender, warm and happy!
I'm still experimenting with hardiness of these Nelita variants.
You could grow them up a bit, harden them off to cooler temps and set them out in a protected area like the south side of a building or windbreak.
My Run-of-the-Mill Cherry of the Rio Grandes (not Nelita) seem to have quite a bit of hardiness in a protected area with temps even down to the lower 20s in containers... should fare better in the ground in a similar area.

Here's a topic on COTRG hardiness you may find interesting:

Hi Kevin
My COTRG kept dying back in Bradenton FL. What do I need to do to be able to grow them here?

TLC is what any plant needs... water, warmth, sunlight and feeding.

So... Why are yours plants dying?

I really don't know! Some nurseries said they didn't do well in Florida. They actually liked cooler climates better, probably with less humidity...

I live in Alabama... plenty of balmy sultry muggy high humidity days ... they grow fine here.
