have 4 of these seedlings about the yard with moderate protection for all of  them.  All died after 27F as far as I can tell.  Exposed to at least 5 hours of  this freeze (no frost).  I have had these before seem to handle temps below 25F but only for a brief moment.  Guess the prolonged freeze is what did them in.

Bassellinia gracilis
2 foot tall plant, surrounded by a light overhead canopy
33F on thermometer but this plant is a bit more out in the open than where the guage is.
Upper leaves looking sickly and shriveling.  50% damage I'd say.
