Mister Lincoln Reputedly a sister seedling to 'Oklahoma'. This is probably the best dark red we have. The dark red base colour has a fiery red overlay which fades very slowly. The perfume is a long lasting heavy damask type. (Who says you cannot have the damask type perfume and a strong stem?). The plant is really too tall, but it gives huge quantities of flowers of superb form which is rather fleeting. Makes a wonderful bunch of full bloom if picked at perfect exhibition stage the evening before the show.
