Two specimens:

One, in a five-gallon, about 18" leaf length, no damage, under ficus trees, temps nearby to 24.8 F for three days, probably did not experience such temps.

Another, in the ground, 24" leaf lenght, under a Cedrus deodar, three days of 28-29 F, no damage.

Here's an update:

This specimen was in the ground under the Cedrus deodar of Lust and Desire, four solid nights of 28-29 F (-1 C) at least in the exposed areas.

No damage!
