May depend on where you live.
If I planted those in Beaverton, Oregon last fall, they could probably take 5 days of 90 degree weather now with no problem.
If they were planted in December after root growth stopped, that would be different.
Is there mulch?

Also, read the mulch topic (may say mulch or barkdust)

PS - Remember, Oregon is fairly moderate. Long dry summers, but not tremendous amounts of 90 degree weather - 100s is very uncommon.
