Do I Need to Cover My New Ninebarks This Winter?

We planted Ninebarks this June, religiously watered and they look fine. Was curious if I need to cover this winter because I am sure they are not fully established.

Ninebark plants are hardy to zone 3, and easy to grow. I wouldn't think they need special care for winter. Besides, if you cover them, you will miss the exfoliating bark, just one of the benefits of this shrub.
