|Check the soil moisture and consider if now is the time for them to go dormant in your area. My moscheutos recently went dormant like that.|

|@patsycake, Is your Hibiscus planted in the ground or in a container? Is it possible for you upload a photo of your hibiscus below so that we can see the issue?
As WillC mentioned, yellowing leaves with all plants can be attributed to numerous issues. Tropical Hibiscuses (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) are evergreen and don't go dormant like the Hardy Hibiscuses (Hibiscus moscheutos) which is deciduous and loses it's leaves at this time of year.
If the weather has been quite dry in your part of Florida (as it has here in the Port Orange area where I live) and you haven't offered supplemental water, that could be the reason for the yellowing leaves.
