From the same parents that produced Papa Meilland® and Mister Lincoln comes this wonderful, deep red Hybrid Tea. The full flower is closer to Mister Lincoln, while the dark color is more like its other sibling. All three share the same wonderful fragrance and perform well in the vase.

||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.
