Thanks for these very resounding "YES!" reports guys and gals.  I have seen these for sale around here, but have always wondered if they might be an expensive bit of future mulch.  It sounds as though these are relatively tough.

Two specimens endured three lengthy freezes at 31,  30 and 29F minimum, respectively, under canopy near house, which offer good protection: no damage. But the 15-hour freeze two days ago, minimum 23.3F, I think 9 hours below 28, 4-5 hours below 24...just about toasted both specimens. However a couple of small offsets that were somewhat covered by a couple of large leaves (but really not stopping the cold air from hitting them) seem to have survived, and the spear may still be good on the main stem of one of these small (9" plants). The other specimen may be completely gone. But still I think this is quite a strong Pinanga, and perhaps about 25F under canopy is their limit. Also the length of this freeze was pretty intense! So we'll see if they can revive. Am not holding out too much hope but will be pleasantly surprised if they do!
