I live in Chocowinity N.C. which is on the east of N.C. I have two hibiscus plants that are planted in the ground. How often should
they be watered? And is it ok that they are dropping their leaves even the same ones? Can you tell me what zone I'm in? I think it's 8.

Yes, you are in planting zone 8a. Hibiscus like moist soil, but not wet. So water often enough to keep the soil moist. Dropping leaves could be a sign of overwatering or underwatering.
