A neighbor gave me some seeds from these and said they are Hibiscus.
Is that true ?

Yep, I think you have a Texas star hibiscus. See this link http://www.westongardens.com/page%20content/plant%20library/texas%20star%20hibiscus.htm
It looks like a beauty!
What? You don’t trust your friend? Yes, it is an 8′ tall hibiscus. Hibiscus coccineus, in fact. Take a look… http://www.floridata.com/ref/h/hibisc_c.cfm
