Mr Lincoln Rose: elegance in a deep red shade

The rose is not known as the “queen of flowers” for no reason.

There are rarely any other plants that can compete with the elegant beauty and magnificent hue of its bloom.

The world is flush with countless rose species and varieties.

However, with its universally recognized symbolism, the red rose has to be among the most popular.

Mister Lincoln rose embodies all the best qualities of a true red rose.

The epitome of timeless elegance

Red roses have long been mesmerizing to everyone.

They are a must-have for every garden due to their refined beauty.

As a result of its symbolic significance, the plant is also immensely popular in flower bouquets, table centrepieces, and even when standing alone.

No other flower expresses affection and love with such indulgence as the red rose.

But if you’re looking for the ultimate, classic red rose, “Mr. Lincoln” is at the top of the list.

It has everything you want in a rose: classic but exquisite hybrid tea bloom with a stunning shade of velvet red and an entrancing aroma.

It’s probably true that the flower is one of the best red roses of all time. This is due to the fact that the undying love for “Mr. Lincoln” rose shows no sign of fading since it was honourably named in the All-America Rose Selections in 1965.

“Mr. Lincoln” rose is known for its strong fragrance and huge velvety petals that can withstand high temperatures.

How to take care of this beauty?

One of the best things about the Mister Lincoln is that it’s one of the few red rose species that require minimal maintenance.

In fact, since it is a hybrid, it actually inherited the best features of both parent plants. What a way to get the best of both worlds!

Your garden can benefit from the delicious melon aroma of the tea rose and the prolonged blooming of the hybrid perennial.

  • Ideally, Mr. Lincoln roses love nice, soft, and well-draining soil. Just like every other plant.
  • Create a hole that’s twice as wide and deep as the plant’s root ball, then carefully set the plant within. 
  • Make sure to place the plant in a spot that receives at least six to eight hours of full sunlight daily, such as a porch or patio.
  • Watering shortly after planting also helps to establish and settle the roots. Spread a layer of 2-3 inches of mulch over the soil to help seal in that moisture.
  • Check the soil around your rose bushes every few days to determine if they need watering. Generally, you should water your rose when the top two or three inches of soil are dry.
  • If your rose is planted in a container, water it thoroughly until the water begins to leak out of the drainage holes.
  • Another reason to love Mister Lincoln roses is that they don’t require special trimming and pruning other than shaping. But if necessary, give Mr. Lincoln a nice haircut when it goes dormant, usually in the winter. This helps promote new robust growth in springtime.
  • To ensure healthy rose bushes, use a liquid fertilizer twice a year, once in the spring and once in the summer.
