Rosa "Mr Lincoln" was bred by Swim & Weeks, USA in 1964. This is a very tall growing rose to 1.8 metres should be planted at the back of the rose bed where it will shine over and above all the roses and the breath-taking fragrance will still be enjoyed.
Mr. Lincoln has retained its popularity over the years because it is just so reliable a performer with very tough, leathery foliage, especially loving the heat. As with most dark red roses, Mr. Lincoln has very sharp thorns and produces huge, thick watershoots which should be pruned with loppers rather than secateurs.

Just beautiful. I am leaning over the fence to smell the rose I photographed in someone else's garden. I always wonder what they will say if they catch me...ReplyDelete
This is a beautiful red rose. I love roses, but it was not until this year that I started really loving red roses. Will have to keep this in mind.ReplyDelete
I had to look up "secateurs." It makes sense that a short handle should be avoided.ReplyDelete
