My larger one gets a good bit of shade, but seems to tollerate it quite well and has continued to grow, even with the cool temperatures we have had lately. I get conflicting information on the minimum temps they will take. Both of mine showed no damage on Dec 19th with a low somewhat at, or below 25 F. With the onslaught of Artic air about to desend on us, I'm wondering if I should cover them?
I have 5 species of Brahea's with B. armata being the most cold hardy and B. brandegeei showing frond damage below 25 F., but they all survived the 89/90 freeze with no trunk damage. It took awhile for the B. brandegeei to recover. The B. armata was untouched at 14F.
Any suggestions or advise?

All the desert palms will. Mid-20s F should be no problem, possibly down to 20 F . . .
Someone correct me if theire experience is different?

I expect mine will get cold tested tonight to 20 or below.
