These two are at Mercer botanical gardens in Houston. Judging from the rest of the gardens it may have dropped to 23 degrees during the January 2017 freeze.

I have one and was afraid to put it in the ground.    This is very encouraging.

I have a 5-gallon sized A. arenaria planted between my neighbor and I (approx. 15-feet wide strip) around 2010 which survived this past winter with significant damage. All fronds were fried by a night-time low of 20F in January.  New growth from below ground was apparent within two weeks. This palm gets direct sun during the middle of the day in spring/summer and generally bright light for all other times. Generally this past winter was warm, but we did have a 36-hr  period below freezing with the 20f low in January.
