Most flowers are either  destroyed or resist. However, now you mentioned it, 
I noticed that some petals of Moraea polystachya 'curle up'  to resist 
better to the potential damage.  But for  the Dahlia   -4° (24F°) is the 
fatal temperture.
The leaves of certain species  become floppy and darker, but recover to 
normal wihin a few days (Lachenalia, Aapanthus, Amaryllis belladonna)

Did the flowers that were not damaged change themselves while it was  

For example, I can tell how cold it is outside by seeing how tightly  
the rhododendrons roll their leaves.  No need to go outside or look at  
a thermometer - just look out the window.
