Hibiscus is evergreen in San Antonio but, as with all broadleaf evergreens, the oldest leaves are shed throughout the growing season. If the yellow leaves are the older ones, toward the center of the plant or farther back on the branches, it's normal and natural. If the yellowing leaves are the new growth, it indicates a water stress or a need for fertilizer. Hope this information helps you determine just what the cause might be.
