I have a 4 foot tall overall L. ramsayi. Several nights really cold. No damage!

Two seedlings, 1 3' tall, and 1 18" tall, planted against a wall that seems to be offering moderate cold protection.  Temps just a few feet from these plants were 27F for 5 hours.  Plants are also under shade cloth.  No detectable damage on either plant, though seedling Chamaedorea woodsoniana burned quite noticably just 1' away.

Can someone define "really cold" in this context please?

I have one three foot tall L. ramsayi that is still alive after the 2007 freeze. In that year the palm received a 29.5F temperature for 3 hours for one night and had some bronzing on one or two leaves that were more horizontal. This plam is planted on a north side canyon under 40-50% canopy. There was some frost on that side of the house that night.
