Gary's is planted up against a 12 foot tall boulder which, in my opinion, offers a bit of protection (just for the record).

Old news, but maybe still usedful:  5' over all plant against house, under tree (without leaves) took 26F for maybe 1 hour max without damage... temp at this site probably was a bit higher.

No Ron, mine is Acanthophoenix Crinita and it has been in the ground for six or seven years and has some nice woody trunk now. Rubra is the one I hear that is more sensitive.
