What a pretty thing! It's a hibiscus, and from the colour of the flower I would say it's not hardy. Hopefully it will be OK in your flower bed over summer, but if you want to keep it alive when autumn comes you'll need to plant it in a pot and bring it indoors. After that, keep it warm, give it plenty of water and feed it. If the weather looks like it might be cold at night time, you could put some fleece over it to keep it warm.
