You might not expect the Sooner sister of Mister Lincoln to have such a dusky dark red color. But yes, she does have the same delicious scent. This most known of the black-reds produces big buds and graceful flowers on a bushy plant beset with large leaves. Darkest color &?best performance with some heat.
