Hibiscus - Red Hot and Maple Sugar - Salt tolerant?

I just purchased these two hibiscus. Does anyone know if they have any salt tolerance? I'm trying to decide if they will go in pots (not preferred), or in the landscape. Our irrigation has some salt intrusion.

Thanks, Terri

Not sure how close you are to water, but we've always had them growing lushly around here in waterfront yards on barrier islands & fill surrounded by seawalls.

Thanks Carol. We are a block off the river and a bayou. Sounds like it might be doable to put them in the ground. Time will tell.
