CA freeze

We had about a week of teens and low 20* here in mild No CA! We're still getting freezes each morning, but not hard freezes!
Last August my neighbors moved to Maui (poor fellers!) and gave me a BUNCH of her plants!
Oh my! Sooo many of the plants have died and we'll see if some of them have survived in the spring! There were so many, I put them under some cypress trees to hopefully keep them safe from our occasional frost.
All of the geraniums are toast, the asparagus ferns are damaged, but I think will survive.
Does anyone know if agapanthus will survive that long of a freeze? They look pretty bad! And I have them everywhere!
Along with the freeze is total drought! I have to remember to go out and water when I usually just rely on mother nature! Nancy

One of many geraniums survived. Why? Who knows? One right next to it froze!
The agapanthus looked pretty bad, but survived. The asparagus ferns....sort of survived. One came back a bit, the other......a sprig or two. Nancy
