Mister Lincoln and Oklahoma
I'm guessing this is a question for Kim, but this doesn't make sense to me. Both Mister Lincoln and Oklahoma were developed by Swim & Weeks. Both share the same parentage--Chrysler Imperial and Charles Mallerin. Both came out in 1964. I'm sure there's some botanical genetic reason why these are not the same rose, but for your average home rose grower, what's the difference? And why did the same breeder develop and then market two roses so similar at the same time? For those of us in southern California, does one have distinct advantages over the other?
