I let temps get down to just above 25 without giving protection- no visible immideate damage. Colder nights I gave protection in the form of a sheet & lamp. I still don't see any damage. Absolute low was 23

Me, too.

About 25 FF.  Two nights, no damage as yet in three fifteen gallon specimens.

Two seedlings in yard- one in raised pot about 18" tall and 6 years old showed moderate leaf burn on uppermost leaves only.  Other 3' tall plant in ground near several taller plants showed no damage, even two weeks later.  Got down to 27F at least for 5 hours

I have two of these that I covered with heavy duty garbage bags.  The one closest to my house suffered 20% leaf burn.  Low temp reading of 24.9F taken very near this plant.

The other (20 feet away from my house) suffered 30-40% leaf burn, then the spear pulled out 2 months later.  I noticed this morning it is pushing a new spear.
