Plant details

Introduced in 1954, 'Lincoln Star' has attractive raspberry-pink flowers with a dark-coloured central bar. These are produced in two flushes; the main one appearing from late spring to early summer and a second one following in late summer. The blooms are a better colour when the plant is grown in partial shade. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps.
