Rose of the Week....Mr. Lincoln

If you want Valentine's Day type roses, then Mr. Lincoln is definitely a good choice.  It makes wonderful cut roses, so if you are looking for a great, traditional red rose....go with Mr. Lincoln.
Ignore the date, this happens when I change batteries in an obviously old camera.
This was shot this morning.  This would be perfect for cutting.  

I do have some blackspot issue, and it can get leafless at times, but the rose is fantastic.  I have only one red rose that beats it.  I believe its the Chrysler Imperial, but I am still researching...but this one does have fragrance and huge blooms.  For more information, click HERE

Garden Web had discussions on Mr. Lincoln, Chrystler Imperial, Oklahoma and FireFighter.

All have their favorites. I think you probably have the best two.
