One of the Truly Great Red Roses Ever
John from AR wrote on April 26, 2014

I have had my Mr. Lincoln rose for 3 years now. I have it planted on the east side of the house which means it is shaded for about half the day. I really didn't prepare the soil in the bed (a new flower bed) all that much but Mr. L. took off from the start. It produces impressive canes (last year one topped 6 feet) and beautifully-formed deep red flowers. This year it's already producing more canes than last year and the buds are plumping so I should be enjoying roses very soon. I wasn't able to get out and care for it much last summer but it seemed to avoid black spot and mildew (a big deal here in humid south Arkansas). If you love red hybrid teas, this should be at the top of your list!

THE rose of roses
John Brewer from OR wrote on February 24, 2014

I bought one of these in the early seventys I believe. The first rose on this bush was a rose show winner for sure. It was quite large foe this rose. Saucer size at least. It was perfect to the very last petal. I cut it and my wife and myself enjoyed it for a week. We were going on vacation for a week so we gave it to a dear friend to enjoy A week after we returned home he returned it. It was still awsome. We enjoyed it for almost another week befor we had to discard it. I am 71 now and have never seen another rose as great as that one. I did enjoy many years of these most fragrent of roses. Close your eyes and smell this rose and you will know exactly what a rose should smell like. Unforetunately the deer loved them as well as I did. They won the battle but not the war. I am going to order a couple of more of these and do battle again.I am allso going to order a couple of Double Delights. My second favorite rose in the world. I will revue these as well. I have a guard cat now that will put the fear in.

susceptible to mildew and white fly
Rose Weiss from OR wrote on February 05, 2014

This rose was planted about 10 years ago by the previous owner of our home. The flowers are very lovely, but the bush is far more susceptible to problems than any of our other rose varieties. We live in a moist climate (coastal Oregon) and no doubt that contributes to its problems. Often this plant will have white fly when other near-by roses, such as Sun Flare, won't have them.

Just Buy It!
Nancy E from CA wrote on March 24, 2013

Mr. Linkie, as my little daughter calls it, is the epitome of a rose. The fragrance is what you imagine a rose should smell. The color is intense and slowly turns almost burgundy red as the blooms age. Blossoms are huge and full. The bush is easy to grow and nicely leafed. If you have room for only one rose, this is your choice.
