Most Spring bulb flowers can tolerate brief dips in temperatures.

If the temperatures stay very low for extended periods of time, you can cover the plants with a cloth or burlap. Uncover them as soon as the temps warm.

Even if the flowers and leaves suffer some damage, they can usually recover with not long term damage.
