Hollywood Hibiscus Drama Queen ppaf

DRAMA QUEEN lives up to her name, with bright white bold blooms that stir up talk wherever she goes. Looking for a container garden thriller? Let DRAMA QUEEN do the work for you. She has a big (red) heart, though, and really does enjoy time with her besties, SOCIALITE and PARTY GIRL. When they’re (planted) together, you’re going to want pics, and so will everyone else. That’s just fine with these ladies. They all live for the spotlight (and sunlight). If not enjoying a night on the town, DRAMA QUEEN can be lounging poolside with a fruity drink. She likes to stay sun-kissed and well-hydrated.

You might be a DRAMA QUEEN if:

  • You enjoy being the center of attention.
  • Wear your heart on your sleeve.
  • Always want to be included in everything.
