It is not ideal, obviously, If the shrubs have been purchased they can be planted until the ground freezes. It takes time for the frost to move down so the ground will be warm for some time giving roots a chance to grow.. However, root development is affected by temperature and it is going to cold for months. Weather reports predict highs in the 40s.
