very favorableReview by John in Idaho
I have been growing roses for 50 years. If I could have only one rose, it would be Mr Lincoln. When one thinks of a cut rose, this is what one would want that rose to be like. (Posted on 12/11/2016)
So BeautifulReview by berrieboyd
I completely remodeled the front of our house and made a special spot for a rose bush. I searched all the companies who had roses for sale and made my final decision to go with Heirloom Roses. I had to wait to order Mister Lincoln, he seems to be very popular and out of stock early, but this rose was well worth the wait. I planted him in September and was astonished to see a flower bud by the first of November. Yesterday he opened completely into this magnificent masterpiece. I am so glad I waited for this rose bush to come back in stock. Mister Lincoln does not disappoint. Because he is so beautiful, fragrant and perfect in size, I now want several more Mister Lincoln's to plant by our outside fireplace. (Posted on 11/12/2016)
Can be counted on for red red bloomsReview by Allison
My poor Mr. Lincoln is in a spot where the dogs like to lay, I know, shame on me, but he keeps producing none-the-less. Can always be counted on for beautiful velvety red blooms on single stalks for cutting and filling a vase. Every garden should have a Mr. Lincoln. (Posted on 3/31/2015)
My first love in rosesReview by Mari
This rose is my first love. I have MANY roses, but if I could only have one, this would be it. Tall, dark and handsome, reliable as the rising sun and with a fragrance that is seductive, one cannot ask for anything more. A great rose for a beginner, he is easy to care for and very generous with large, beautiful blooms regardless of the weather. (Posted on 1/1/2015)
My first ;)Review by Kristine
Mr. Lincoln made me fall in love with growing roses. I planted a Peace and a Mr. Lincoln when I first moved into my house four years ago, knowing very little about roses, only knowing I wanted something with a strong fragrance. He hasn't dissapointed! Lovely strong fragrance with definite notes of tea, beautiful velvety crimson blossoms, a traditional feel to this rose! A great rose to start out with, he makes it look easy, with a new rose or two popping open every week or two all season long on nice long canes.
I live in Wisconsin and he's been pretty reliable suriviving our tough winters. (Posted on 5/22/2014)
He's what got me addicted to rosesReview by Lisa
I had other roses but never fell in love with them. Huge blooms, a deep garnet red, that look to be made of velvet. At times I have severely cut him back because I didn't have support for him and he bloomed so much and blooms so big he would start to fall over [I am a novice I should have put a pretty small pillar with him]. He doesn't mind frequent cuts to fill vases he bounces right back. Ladies at work always Oo and ahh over him if I bring some flowers to work. I have had NO problems with him. I don't treat him, spray, or do much of anything to him really outside prune and bonemeal and he's happy. He is very fragrant you can smell him walking past. It seems he is more fragrant some times then others which I haven't figured out yet. I tell my friends who havent had roses and are intimidated by them but want one to get Lincoln.
