After successfully killing 4-6 years worth of this plant due to cold weather. 10 - 12 plants per year. ( No we are not rich) I have to ask............ can this plant survive our winters. We have lost them in the ground and in pots. The the tag on the plant say's " down to 10 degrees" If the answer is NO ! What plant can we substitute that is heartier and has a flower that is comparable?

Dn & D-
I don't have one but a neighbor down the alley (Plano) has one & it grows so great it pops through the fence every year. It has reddish orange blooms & I love seeing it in the alleyway. It dies down to looking dead every winter & he leaves the dead-looking growth alone until it starts coming back every spring (not yet this year) but it's faithful in coming back. Have you left yours alone & given it time to come back? I'm assuming we're talking about 'hardy hibiscus'.
