'Souvenir du Président Lincoln' rose References
Newsletter  (Feb 2021)  Page(s) 6-7.  Includes photo(s).
‘Souvenir du President Lincoln’ is a seedling of ‘Sir Joseph Paxton’. The rose shows a somewhat expansive habit typical of many Bourbons. Its long smooth canes bear pale prickles conveniently spaced. The ovate-acuminate, serrated leaves display a medium green with three, five, and seven leaflets to a leaf. Some maverick leaflets here and there, however, are simply rounded near and at the bottom. The pedicel is bristly or glandular, the receptacle chalice-shaped and smooth, the simple sepals equal in size and glandular. Very full, perfumed flowers show off in dark rosy red with carmine pink on the reverse of the reflexed petals. I’ve yet to see a nuance of black cast on the red, a descriptive color mentioned in the first twenty years or so of the flower’s existence. The sometimes quartered blossoms extend themselves as solitary but occasionally in twos or threes.

Souvenir du President Lincoln  Large, broad lilac-rose blooms of intense coloring and excellent fragrance; we fear this cannot be the rose originally sold under this name, a rose that honored Abraham Lincoln, a rose that should be deep crimson shaded blackish red.  Source: Schultheis.
