A rose doesn't have to be new to be good, or to win. 'Mister Lincoln' was introduced in 1964, and 'Royal Highness' in 1963. They still find their way to the show bench because when they're good, they can be very, very good. That is, they meet the standards by which roses should be judged. This is particularly true of 'Royal Highness', and less often, but still occasionally, for 'Mister Lincoln'. With the latter, you have the advantage that on show day if you have a good 'Mister Lincoln' -- but one not good enough to win Queen -- you can always enter it in the Most Fragrant class. It often wins there.
