Rico Suave

RICO SUAVE knows how to work a room, putting his charming good looks to work seducing everyone within view. Gotta love that confidence! His gold-orange ruffled petals beckon you closer so you can appreciate his mysterious deep burgundy center. Despite being highly fashionable, RICO SUAVE is an easygoing guest, happy with lots of sun and liquid refreshments. Find him comparing notes with GOLD DIGGER. They’re two peas in pod (Or plants in a pot).
