Okay, I'm spoiled where I live because the things grow like weeds here. Push a cutting into the ground and it will probably strike and go on to flower. However if you live in the colder climates there are hibiscus varieties that will survive and pass. Try the ROSE MALLOW (Hibiscus moscheutos). Of course the colour choices are not as various as the tropical varieties, but the flower is very similar and unless you reside in REALLY artic conditions, it will get through the winter. It will of course lose its leaves but come back again when it warms up.

Here's one of my larger tropical ones called "Tequila Sunrise".
