Where to plant my apricot treed?

I have bareroot Flavor Delight aprium, Royal, and Tisdale apricots coming from Legg Creek and Womack's this winter. I am in 8b Texas with an average 600 wildly variable chill hours. I am trying to decide whether to plant them out in an exposed location to discourage early bloom, or or on the southern side of my house for frost protection and easier emergency measures in case of a late freeze (frost cloth, Christmas lights). Any opinions?

    I would plant them in the open. They usually don't need frost protection
