Mister Lincoln®

Type: Hybrid Tea

A very well-known hybrid tea. Long-pointed buds open into large, well-formed, long stemmed, fully double, 4" blooms (petals 24+) of 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.

The king of rosesReview by Shara
My Nana and my mom had these as I was growing up along with “Peace” and “Queen Elizabeth”. I have planted them at nearly every home we’ve had with our military moves- Tampa, Savannah, and now Columbia SC (8b). You won’t find a more stunning, deep red, velvety rose with an outstanding fragrance that can’t be matched. He’s and a quick, tall grower. My only complaint is that Japanese Beetles and black spot love him. Be prepared to spray frequently, and fertilize constantly for the best show. Blooms continually. (Posted on 10/29/2018)
A lovely red roseReview by Carol
I planted Mr Lincoln along with Chrysler Imperial at the beginning of the summer in zone 6. Chrysler Imperial has way out grown Mr Lincoln this summer.
Mr Lincoln is doing fine and I am sure it will be better next year. Now at the end of October it has finally put out some vigorous new growth, hopefully it hardens off before a freeze.
These two reds were my mother's favorite red roses and I see why. (Posted on 10/25/2018)

Will buy more. Wish they were a little cheaper. Review by Fred

Beautiful and fragrant.Review by Barbara
This is the most fragrant rose ever. My first year and it has grown almost 7 feet high. I'm from Wisconsin, it is October and it's still blooming. I highly recommend this beautiful red rose.

Purrrfect RoseReview by Mikey
I consider Mister Lincoln to be one of the top roses ever. Here in central coastal region of Oregon (zone 9- I believe), this rose outperforms. Beats back Blackspot on its own and given enough water and sun, will bloom until Thanksgiving. Mister" L" has long vase life and the fragrance is suburb. This rose will not disappoint. Heirloom own stem roses are the only way to go if you want to own roses and Mister Lincoln the red rose of my choice. (Posted on 10/14/2018)
solid, quick 1st year growthReview by Michael
I'm in zone 6b, but I haven't had it thru a winter yet. So far, it's grown well, producing just a single beautiful flower, but the plant's at least twice as large as the initial one I received. (Posted on 10/11/2018)
lovely long stemmed red roseReview by Lois
I live in zone 6 planted this rose early spring it has produced long stemmed deep red roses. I am pleased to say they look beautiful in a tall vase. (Posted on 10/11/2018)
Years of success in partial shade Review by Plantmeister
I've grow two of these for many (20?) years in partial shade and they still repeat intermittently from early summer to first frost (or later!). Some years they grow quite tall (6') but still don't need staking. If I want a "long stemmed rose" I can get one from these plants! ( Michigan, zone 5) (Posted on 10/6/2018)
Beautiful flowerReview by Edward
I live in zone 6 and the rose is doing very well. Bush produces beautiful flowers and attracts butterflies and humming birds. (Posted on 10/5/2018)
All time favoriteReview by Kathryn
What a wonderful rose! This has been my favorite for years. The fragrance and size of the bloom cannot be beat. Colorado has rough winters yet this rose makes it through and produces every year (Posted on 9/12/2018)
Outstanding color and fragranceReview by Jeannie
Mister Lincoln rose is very reliable in Louisiana zone 8. The repeat blooms are gorgeous, fragrance is fantastic and shrub is extremely healthy and nicely formed. I have two others of this variety and they never fail to put on a beautiful show. (Posted on 7/13/2018)
Mr LincolnReview by joanne
Mr Lincoln is one of my all time favorite roses. I purchased this early spring and it has 4 blossoms now. the rich deep red that has the most wonderful Rose fragrance and the plant has the gorgeous glossy dark green foliage. It is stunning against my white privacy fence. (Posted on 6/19/2018)

A classic rose for the agesReview by Aloysius
This year I ordered three own-root hybrid teas from Heirloom -- two old favorites and one Kordes: "Mister Lincoln," "Tropicana" and "Sunny Sky." I followed their planting instructions to the letter, and now all three are thriving and blooming. In fact, the bushes have tripled in size in a relatively short amount of time -- despite punishingly hot and windy days here in Central Texas (zone 8). Thank you, Heirloom Roses. You rock!

Robust BushReview by LincolnLover
I love the fragrance, the large blooms, and the long stems. I can cut these for a vase and they can compete with any florists' arrangement. The thorns are formidable, but the flowers are well worth it. For years, it has been the only thing I could keep alive in my yard. As a mature bush, I don't fuss with it at all. I live in zone 8.

Hopeful for springReview by Dave
The rose bush will hopefully survive into spring. The bare root plant appeared to be healthy when it was planted in the fall. There seems an even split among authorities as to fall planting of roses in Chicago. (Posted on 12/28/2017)
This is an excellent rose bush. I love the fragrance! It smells like something from heaven! Review by Boosie
This is an excellent rose bush. It smells heavenly! (Posted on 11/25/2017)
StunningReview by Cheryl Ann
One of my very favorites! Nicely shaped upright bush with blooms that scent my whole garden. Also make a beautiful cut flower. (Posted on 10/1/2017)
Stately FlowerReview by Henry
Got a gallon size last July and has produced 3 flowers so far, truly fragrant and could've produced more had fall and frost not set in here in Ohio. I do look forward to a more prolific bloomer next season. A really standout in my garden, so distinct in color and not loud at all. (Posted on 9/30/2017)
