perennials will live through frost and even freezing unless you planted ones not for your climate zone (for instance tomatoes are perennials in florida but only annuals in Ny state).
but any perennials that are flowering may loose their flowers and may or may not flower again till next season if frosted. so you may want to cover any that are flowering for astetic purposes.

So far so good, and now we're back in the 40s overnight. Perhaps I panicked??? Went to my favorite garden center today and I'd best not tell my DH what I spent, but my fence border that I have been hemming and hawing over will finally be completed (??) this spring!! Pics to follow somewhere...
