    Yes it grows. This plant originally from Asia went even to Europe, and Italy too. It's considered as decorative for gardens and it also grows free overall in the Centre and South of Italy, where the climate is enough warm. The kind that grows there near rivers or lakes it's called 'Hibiscus palustris' (Marshy Hibiscus) and it gets great rose flowers

    Propagation by Cuttings Hibiscus waimeae grow easily from semi-hardwood cuttings. Cuttings should be from 4 to 6 inches long, about 1/4 inch in diameter (pencil-sized), and have at least 3 nodes. Dip the bottom end of the cutting in a medium strength rooting hormone; Bornhorst (1996) recommends Rootone F or Hormex #3; Bornhorst (1991) also reports the use of a 1:10 Dip N Gro solution. Use a well-drained medium such as a mixture of 1 part potting soil and 1 part perlite (NTBG), or a mix consisting of perlite and vermiculite (Bornhorst 1991). Keep the cuttings in a humid environment and the rooting medium moist using a mist system if possible. Bornhorst (1991) reports the successful use of a mist system which was one for 24 seconds every 3 minutes. Cuttings are ready to transplant in about 3 months.

    Yes it does but especially in the center and South where the temperatures are higher. There is a kind of Hibiscus which groes spontaneously which is called Hibiscus Roseus.
