citrus seedlings in the ground in the North, an experiment

inspired by a story of a little lemon seedling being able to (allegedly) survive in the ground in Montana, I decided to start an experiment.
I'm using citrus varieties that are a little more cold hardy than regular lemon though.
I planted these all out in mid-March and the temperatures were too cold/cool and the leaves all turned white and the seedlings completely defoliated. There was some minor stem die-back and damage as well. (It stayed well above freezing though) However, the seedlings have all sprouted new leaves since then, all the leaves are smaller in size than what they were.
