Will my Ross Estey Hibiscus survive the winter? If not, will they die or come back in the spring? My home is Simpsonville, SC (NW SC) - zone 7.

The tropical hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa sinensis) is only hardy in zones 10 and 11, and will not survive a cold winter area such as yours outdoors. It would need to be brought indoors or into a heated greenhouse for the winter and treated like a houseplant.
