how to overwinter hibiscus?

hibiscus in a container, zone 9, can they stay outside thru the winter?
Submitted by mscarolyns104

Large-flowered Oriental hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) is hardy only in Zones 10 and 11, so it would not survive in a container outdoors. However, hardy hibiscus (H. moscheutos), which is hardy to Zone 5, would be able to winter in a container in Zone 9.
