fragrant tea olives

We live in the Inner Banks of North Carolina and this year have had several prolonged cold snaps. Two years ago we planted what we hoped would be a hedge of seven plants and they were doing very well until these cold spurts. All the leaves have fallen off, as we are worried they might not survive. Can you advise?
Thank you,

Unfortunately, they are not hardy to cold temperatures. It can help to cover them with burlap or canvas during the coldest times. You can only hope for a recovery, as there would not be much to do aside from covering them during the extreme periods of cold.

Here is an article for more information on the care of these: [1]
