You could put a high white tarp several feet above it to keep the high heat away...flood the ground with water.  It Aug 2 right now.  I hope that it made it.

First year planted don't cut any, only cut the flowers all the way to the ground, 2nd year cut a few and 3rd year harvest 8 to 10 weeks.  If it goes below 32 there, when you clean up the plants cut everything down and put composted horse manure & several inches of hay on top to keep it from freezing.
