Mr. Lincoln's new home

We received Mister Lincoln by accident from Heirloom Roses, so, we decided to grow it in a container to see how it did here.
I do not spray fungicides, so, I was very leary of putting Mister Lincoln into the ground. So, in a container it went.
But, to my surprise Mister Lincoln has made it through the season so far with no Blackspot and very clean foilage.
So, I decided to plant it in the ground and will hope for the best next season. lol
It's planted out front by our porch stairs.

I love Mr. Lincoln!
Yours is beautiful and growing so well.
Ours is ancient.... well, about a dozen years old. It's grafted, and it really suckers. Plus, now it has that big wooden crown that grafted roses get. I would love to replace it with an own root when we can. Such a great rose.

Interesting -- I was told that Mr. Lincoln could not grow on its own roots -- had to be grafted. Looks like it can.

I hope he does as well next season for you because I think this is the most gorgeous of all red HTs.

My father used to grow Lincoln in his rose garden in the late'60's-'70's. I just love this rose and its scent. I'm glad to hear he stayed clean! I'm thinking about a future purchase...
