Consider that Rhodies and Pines sit outside in the nurseries during the winter in Oregon - at least in Beaverton & Tigard area where I buy wholesale.
One idea though, if the winter temperatures ever take a fast dip, say down to 15 degrees - we had 13 or 16 in 1989 - put those pots in a garage.
We have Rhodies as high elevation plants in Oregon, like on Mt. Hood, but the base of those get insulated with snow to a degree.
So I'd play it safe during our coldest winters.
