Rose of the Week: Mister Lincoln

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.

One of the first roses I ever grew was Mister Lincoln.  I got this rose when I lived in North Carolina about 40 years ago, and it quickly became a favorite with its deep red color and delightful fragrance.  Mister Lincoln was one of the first roses Betsy and I got here in the Glade, and we look forward to enjoying it each year.

This looks like it would have been the first rose ever before all the varieties came up. It is what you think of when you hear the word "rose".

A good name for a traditional rose that can give beauty in a corsage or make a man look even more handsome. Sure wish we had "smell-o-vision" so you could share the fragrance with us.

An exceptionally gorgeous red rose. However, you do not grow anything that is not lovely to see.
