Mister Lincoln

Fragrant & Remontant
Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Mister Lincoln The good news: if you spray and coddle your roses you can enjoy several large, red, fragrant blooms from Mister Lincoln each season. The bad news: If you do not, you will probably lose the rose in the first year to black spot - unless you live in the California desert.

Mister Lincoln encapsulates the very best hybrid teas have to offer. And is a perfect example of the insane practices they require of their tenders.

ARS members rate it 8.6. Grow it, tend it carefully and rejoice. Or not.
