I am from Iowa also! :) IMO if you ship or receive a package from somewhere warmer, the plants should be Ok as long as they don't sit in a mailbox all day. For example, I don't see much problems shipping/receiving to/from Florida since the package will spend less time in cold transit than it would if you shipped to North Dakota. I have shipped some packages in the last few weeks without heat packs and things have been fine. This does not mean that they will be fine every time though. You have to just consider how cold it will actually get. If its just a few degrees below zero things should be fine, but if its 8 degrees, like it will be tonight, I would be more worried...Hope this helps even if this explanation is crap;)

BTW...I have some HM Hmianthus micranthemoides I could sell. It is a fast growing foreground/midground plant. In good light it will spread horizontally, especially if kept pruned low. PM if you are interested
