Its a tropical if the tag says hardy to 38F. You will have to bring it in for the winter. The hardy varieties are labeled as Rose of Sharon.

It looks like a tropical one I have. It's a fantastic bloomer and it's very easy to root cuttings and have more plants. It does need winter protection in your zone. Mine is in a greenhouse all winter, and outside for summer.
