braided hibiscus in the ground
I have 2 small braided hibiscus and I want to transfer them into the ground. Is it possible to just transplant them into the ground and just let them grow the way they grow?

Typically braided hibiscus are tropical hibiscus and they cannot survive temperatures below 20F (zone 9). You are in zone 7b and the temperatures where you live will drop below this threshold in the winter. So if you plant them in the ground, they will need to be dug up and brought indoors in the fall in order to survive the winter.
