This looks like an early tropical hybrid called 'Brilliant' or 'Brilliant Red'. This is the Hibiscus that got me started a few years ago. I still have three of the plants due to their resilience. Great beginners hibiscus looking to get more advanced knowledge. Not sure if about the replacement situation. Is the pict a recent one?

I took that pic in summer of last year :)

RE: what kind of hibiscus do I have?

is the plant in a pot or ground? and how cold did it get in your area? and how old is it?

RE: what kind of hibiscus do I have?

it's in the ground. The coldest it has gotten has been 19 degrees and that only happened once, my mom bought it in the spring last year

RE: what kind of hibiscus do I have?

that might be a bit too cold for the plant. these are tropical plants. i have mine outside in the winter, but it doesn't get much below freezing. hopefully it will start to come back as your weather warms up, but it takes them a long time to really recover from the winter temps .
