>> I'd doubt that they could survive two months of 35/20F, even though that's not extreme temps.

Not the butia, but the others could.

>> So, what do you think should be a "trigger point" when I should cover?

I don't have a butia, this is the first winter for my sabal minor's, but with my biggest trachy I make sure it's covered if we're doing below 10 or so ( depending on day time temps ).
