In 110 temperatures, my two hibiscus plants’ leaves are withering. Am I over watering daily? Should they be put in some shade? They are potted.

In that kind of heat, you are likely underwatering. They will need to be watered twice a day at least. They will use water quickly. Placing them in a shaded location will help reduce the heat stress on them.
