3 plants, tallest about 6', 6 year old seedlings, near house and right (6") from the outdoor thermometer.. All killed instantly it appears from temps 27F.  Never seen a palm die so fast from freeze... except the nearby Archontophoenix purpureas and tuckeris (also croaked instantly).  King palm 4' away was hardly touched (some burn't leaves)... so there is a significant species difference in cold hardiness, at least as large seedlings go.
