A very well-known hybrid tea. Long pointed buds open into large, well-formed, long stemmed, fully double 4" blooms (petals 24+) of velvety, deep red. The velvety texture of the bloom is almost unbelievable. 'Mr. Lincoln' has outstandingly strong damask fragrance that seduces the senses. A vigorous, tall, upright continual blooming bush with dark green foliage. Makes a good cut flower.

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.
