I used the Christmas lights and blanket over the top this past winter with good success, but it didn't get in to the teens.

I didn't have any trouble with the lights burning the p-stem and they were on day and night for several days(Lazy). I wasn't too scientific, left some around bases and wrappped some up the stems. Just trying to get warmth in there to save the plant.
