No, they will be fine. If you have a hard freeze they may lay down and look limp until thawed, but will straighten back up undamaged when the air warms again.

I've had some blooming for more than a month - we had several inches of snow followed by an ice storm the next day last week....it was a very slow thaw. Everything finally melted as of yesterday and oriental hybrids and niger, nigercors look unphased today.
