Is this as big of a bloom as it looks? Love this deep rich color!

Hi Sue -- yes, this one is a beauty -- probably my favorite red, and a big flower to boot. For a while I was thinking Joe Ghio's MARCHING ORDERS had taken its place, but this year MARCHING ORDERS doesn't look that great so NEBRASKA BIG RED is back up as #1 in my book!

It looks like it is made of pure velvet. That is absolutely breathtaking!!
