March Snowstorm

I am worried about several of the plants in the courtyard.  I planted them last summer:  a Gentian,

eight Phlox plants that should look like this when they are fully blooming:
and also, two Hydrangeas and an Oriental Poppy.
They were tricked by several 70 degree days we had in late February, and they've sprouted their vulnerable green leaves.
They don't stand much of a chance with 19 degree temperatures, which we've been having for a number of nights.
I have been covering them up with burlap and blankets, and now they are blanketed by a foot of snow.
I hope they make it.
