Can you tell me what this flower is? I’ve included a picture of the bud and the bloom. Is it a hibiscus?

You are correct! It is a perennial hibiscus. Although it seems to have Woody stems, they will die back to the ground each winter. These plants are VERY slow to emerge in springtime so don't think it died over winter.
