If it gets cold there, you could bring them inside and keep them in a sunny window...at least the hibiscus. Not sure about the bouganvillas, are they in the ground?

Thank you for your responses! I dont know if the hibiscus is hardy or tropical. I bought it from Home Depot.
The bouganvilla's are in pots.
