I have several hibiscus perrenials that come back each year, however I planted a braided hibiscus outside last fall and it looks like a dead bunch of sticks. Should I try putting it in a pot and moving to full sun? It gets the morning, early afternoon sun, and the other hibiscus have done quite well with this same location.

Unfortunately, based on your description I think the braided hibiscus may have been the tropical plant, Hibiscus rosa sinensis, rather than one of the winter hardy perennial types. If this is the case, it will have frozen to death over the winter. I'm sorry I can't be more encouraging.
