Hollywood™ Best Friend™ Hibiscus
rosa-sinensis '9322-3’ PP28510

OMG, we wish BEST FRIEND™ would leak her beauty routine. Her petals are a combination of orange, red, and pink in knockout and ever-changing patterns. She has a contour for every container. In the meantime, look for BEST FRIEND™ on a red carpet near you. She’s never far behind her gorgeous bestie, STARLETTE™. While STARLETTE™ might get most of the attention, true Hollywood aficionados won’t sleep on BEST FRIEND™. Word is that SUGAR DADDY™ has his eye on her. She’s interested, but not committing just yet.

You might be a BEST FRIEND™ if:

  • You’re extremely loyal.
  • You are happiest when spending time with people you love.
  • You’re naturally exuberant and cheerful.
