Don't give up on the hibiscus. If it is the hardy hibiscus variety that dies to the ground each year, they are very slow to break dormancy. I live in zone 4 and have over 15 plants that come back every year, but I haven't seen any growth yet because of a cool Spring. Once it turns off hot, they will start breaking dormancy.
