To me there is no better rose.
It's a mister lincoln, always have been my favorite.
I have Chrysler Imperial. It smells wonderful and is a beautiful red rose. It's a little stingy with the blooms--not loaded. I have had it a couple of years and it gets more generous with the blooms each passing summer.
I like both Chrysler Imperial & Mr. Lincoln. I had to reframe from buying too many roses, so I chose the two Ingrids so they matched in the pots. CI has given me problems with mildew, but no problems with Mr. Lincoln or Ingrid
I had to decide between Chrysler Imperial and Mister Lincoln. I had been observing CI and Mr. L. for awhile. I concluded CI bloomed more than Mr. L. I would be interested in what others say about these two roses as they are both quite beautiful. I guess I will start a post about this.
