You appear to be right on the edge of where they will survive. Anything colder than usual should come with expected damage. I don't think that that is anything wrong with your plant, but it is still recovering from shock. This can take a year or two, sometimes longer.

Just care for it as usual, and it will recover eventually. This article will help you to give it the best care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/bop/bird-of-paradise-an-exotic-flower-like-none-other.htm
