Mister Lincoln Hybrid Tea Rose has an upright form and is a vigorous grower. Mister Lincoln is tolerant of a variety of conditions and is generally a hardy Rose variety. Roses do best in full sun, with a touch of partial shade in the afternoons when planted in the hottest USDA hardiness zones. Roses prefer a highly fertile, organic soil that has great drainage. Plus, a generous layer of mulch over the root system surface to better regulate moisture levels and to best insulate the roots from heat and chill.
Provide a consistently moist environment for your Rose to flourish, avoiding soggy conditions that can smother the roots. Fertilize 2-3 times a year with a Rose or blooming plant fertilizer to keep the blooms returning along with minimal deadheading. Prune in early spring before you see new growth, trimming your canes back to about 6-8 inches above the crown. This promotes a flush of new, even growth each year!
