Default cold hardy or not?

i just found out that we are scheduled for below freezing temps monday night and frost level temps tuesday. i took a look at my cascades (3 years in the ground) and yep! they are coming up like a champ. should i be fazed at the below freezing temps or will the hops ride it out ok? do i need to cover the plant with anything?

cover them with mulch and they will be fine!

What about rhizomes that were just planted last week and are in pots? Supposed to be in the upper 20s at night for the next couple days. I know they are hardy once established but being this young should I worry?

I could bring them in but it would be quite the chore...
