Unexplained Leaf Loss

Hi all,
Sorry for bothering the experts with such a trivial question, but I have a very basic Hibiscus that I bought at a nursery in St. Louis. It's nothing special. It's growing in a pot on the back deck here in Augusta, GA (I've recently moved). I've been here two months and now I've got unexplained leaf loss. They just drop. No yellow. No visible pests. Just green leafs gone and on the deck. Any thought? It's beginning to look like a twig bush. Thanks in advance!

Does it have shiny leaves? If not, it's probably a Rose of Sharon, and it's going dormant. They are deciduous.
