Hollywood™ First to Flirt™ Hibiscus
rosa-sinensis '6998-5’ PP25660
FIRST TO FLIRT™ just has a knack for making everyone feel good about themselves. She’s the first to arrive, always, after FIRST TO ARRIVE™, and always has a crowd around her. She has plenty of blooms to go around, though, so the more conversational companions the better. She hits the circuit pretty hard from spring through fall. Her preferred party companion is PLAYBOY™. They make quite the dynamic duo.
You might be FIRST TO FLIRT™ if:
- You have a wink and a compliment for everyone.
- You love to work a room.
- Everyone wants to hang out with you.
