Hibiscus trees

How do you create a hibiscus tree? Do you do it from a plant? I am a newby to hibiscus. Help!

Trees are from tropical forms. I've never done one, but I assume that you choose the strongest shoot and clip back all the rest. Keep the single shoot trimmed up so that all the foliage is at the top and wait.... I imagine it takes 3 years to get a decent size.
