Rosa 'Mister Lincoln'

Description

Named in honor of President Abraham Lincoln, the hybrid tea rose 'Mister Lincoln' was bred in the United States in 1964 by Swim & Weeks.

With their long stems and classic blooms, they are clearly the most popular variety of roses and are the number one choice of florists.  The blooms have high centers.

This award-winning rose will bloom in your garden with a strong damask scent from early summer until fall.  This damask scent is considered to be the classic rose scent, the means by which many judge roses.  

Diseases can be prevented or controlled by planting in full sun, providing good air circulation around the plant, avoiding overhead watering, or by the application of fungicides. 

A long-lived plant, expectancies up to 30 years.  Fills into the ground, not requiring placement of plants in front.

Providing a layer of mulch around the base of the plant will help to retain moisture in hot climate locations.  

Deadheading will encourage repeat blooming.  In addition, regular maintenance should include the removal of dead or diseased foliage.  Don't allow fallen leaves to remain, but remove them from the site. 

Pruning can be accomplished in late winter.

Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems:  Insects affecting this plant include aphids, beetles, scale, leafhoppers, spider mites, thrips, and rose midges.  

Diseases can include black spot, powdery mildew, rose rosette, and rust.
