Many people grow hibiscus in pots. This is so they can easily be moved indoors when winter arrives. While hibiscus does acclimate to colder weather, they will not tolerate being in below freezing temperatures for many hours.
An interesting fact about hibiscus is that many varieties will actually bloom better if they are a little rootbound. Hibiscus planted directly in the ground would continue to get taller and taller with less blooms. Planting in pots allows you to control growth and you reap the reward of more blooms.
