I kept the frost off with a beach umbrella Rafael.
My bamboo canopy should be big enough by next winter to provide the canopy they'll need...
It's cypress mulch.

I wimped out. 85% of my potted palms (along with the King hybrid you gave me) & my Mango went into the garage, which never got below 52. I covered up a few of the palms in the yard. I think it only got to around 28 and I didn't get any frost. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I had minimal, if any damage.
