Is that hibiscus a tropical plant?

There are two types of hibiscus that gardeners like to grow. One is tropical and must be treated as an annual or taken indoors when cold weather arrives because it's sensitive to frost. Another type is perennial. Those plants are killed to the ground by below-freezing temperatures but they return the next spring. An easy way to tell the difference is that tropical hibiscus has shiny leaves.
