I had a 1 gal size one that saw 28F 2 nights under a sheet and 5 total under 31F. It looks OK. I have a 10 gal one that went in the garage after the first night, it looks fine.

My one gallon sized double in the ground since last summer shows no damage after a low of 26F. It's planted next to my small Roystonea borenquena that also shows no damage other than a little yellowing that is going away with spring weather.

I have 3 P sargentii in the ground unprotected and in an exposed area 11 nights with temps below freezing on average 8hrs or more low was 21˚F. I'm yet to see any damage not even a slight burn. My smallest is about 3' tall and largest about 5' tall,they were planted out last spring.I can't say the same about my P vinifera they didn't fair to well. Maybe some damage will show in time to the sargentii?

Bought one last year, only palm in my garden to show damage. Well actually the leafs don’t appear damaged. But I had a spear pull today so not sure what is going on but only hit 32 once and it was brief. 

Could be some other things going on like it is not a healthy palm etc

I would think it is something else as they will take a lot cold than that without damage.
