Would those who grow this rose under any name, please check for seeds and hips? My plant ("Mr Williams' rose") set a few hips but I note that no descendants are listed.

Hi Margaret,

As I recall it will occasionally set OP hips. However, in my experience most of these hips were dummies and held no viable seed.

Knowing what I know now, I'd guess you could coax seed fertility out of it with some effort.

Thank you.
It's more the correctness of the ID I'm chasing. Alas I no longer have a plant, and my previous garden has mostly been demolished by the new owner. It happens.

I have no faith that what I grew was correct.

There are many imposters for well known OGR's, as you know.

To make matters worse, many of them are closely related, which adds to the confusion.

Indeed.
We're working on a booklet of mystery Teas in Australia, and throwing in a selection of those which have been circulated under wrong names. Some still are.

I have a plant of Elie Beauvillain but have deadheaded it regularly so I don’t know about hips. Mine is growing up and around a coppers log.

We had the same problem with finding hips at Renmark - David was a compulsive deadheader!

Hello Margaret

I have a plant of this up on a koppers log. It is sending down arching canes and is in bloom today 12 July 2022. It would seem to like the winter months in Toowoomba.

It's a good rose for warm climates.
