May be the best red Hybrid Tea of all time. Long stems and dark leaves with great, high-centered flowers that open fully and offer a wonderful, damask fragrance. Tall, vigorous and ever-blooming.
This American hybrid tea rose was a breakthrough when it was first introduced in 1965, and it's still hard to compete with its classic beauty today. Their form is large and fully double, with an irresistible damask fragrance. Mister Lincoln provides a full, deep green background in a rose garden, and strong straight stems for easy cutting.

||Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
||Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
