Selective herbicides for the grasses and weeds are the safest bet. Still it is best to try and avoid getting any on the Hibiscus.

Pulling the weeds up, and spraying with undiluted vinegar VERY LIGHTLY can help, also. Just spray enough to get a mist on the very top of the soil, and not wetting it with the vinegar. This will kill the weeds, and if used in a small amount will leave the Hibiscus unharmed.
