Lots of people lost Cordylines last year, but it was an unusually bad winter. Advice to protect cordylines through winter is to pull the foliage upright, then tie it in that position, cover the whole plant with fleece or similar during really cold spells.
When you say margarita, I'm sure you don't mean the drink, so will assume you mean marguerite standards - these really need to be removed somewhere frost free for the winter.
