Hibiscus plants regenerate quickly

Though they are quite expensive costing Rs 200 a plant or more, most flower plants will die after a short span of time and all the money will be wasted. the hibiscus plant is a rare exception, regerating itself after repeated ant and aphid attacks.
In March 2016, some leaves are visible on the hibiscus plant which were attacked by the ants and aphids a month ago, leaving the plant coated with a white layer. this time the plant has been surrounded by bean plants, so would like to check if the ants will again launch an attack on the plant when it will flower again.
