Often considered by experts to be the best red rose available, the Mister Lincoln delivers a longer bloom season and intoxicating melon aroma that are second to none. In fact, Mister Lincoln is perfect for cut flower arrangements, so you'll never have to spend money on gift roses ever again.
Mister Lincoln is a hybrid variety, merging the most sought-after qualities of two separate roses in one package. It gives your garden the best of both worlds: The sweet scent of the tea rose and the reblooming growth of the hybrid perpetual.
Plus, each bloom is bigger and better because the Mister Lincoln boasts strong upright stems. Amazing cut flower arrangements, striking garden borders, and show-stopping entryway plantings to greet guests are just a click away with Mister Lincoln. No matter where it's placed, onlookers will stop and stare because it's the star of the show.
And it's an heirloom variety that thrives on neglect, even in the country's harshest climates. Roses suited for southern Florida are almost unheard-of, but Mister Lincoln does it all. Despite tough conditions—from freezing winter temperatures to sweltering Miami heatwaves—Mister Lincoln provides the look of a master rose garden without pruning, trimming or deadheading.
Best of all, when you order from Brighter Blooms, you get Mister Lincoln's flawless red roses plus healthier growth. That means more blooms, more fragrance, and more color than ever before delivered directly to your door.
Mister Lincoln transforms average landscapes into the yards seen on front-page features. Thanks to its expert cultivation, it's an American legend. Order the Mister Lincoln today...and get your own professional rose garden tomorrow!
1. Planting: Select a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your Mister Lincoln in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch to conserve moisture.
If you're planting your Mister Lincoln in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container and use organic soil. Place your rose, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your rose is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a liquid rose fertilizer, once in the spring and once in the summer. Follow the instructions on the package.
4. Pruning: Other than shaping, no pruning is required.
