Does this rose sucker on its own roots?

Mine hasn't after a couple of decades in loose sandy soil.

Sorry Margaret, the day after replying that mine did not sucker, when hand-watering my 2010-planted own-root bush, there was this new cane emanating one foot from the main trunk. (Roses have an incredible capacity to turn us into blithering idiots.)

Given the praise this rose has got on many different forums, I find it surpising that it does not have any descendants listed. FN is said to set hips so infertility should not be a problem. Any experience?

A few years ago I did have a lot of seedlings Fritz Nobis x OP. I think the succesfully germinated seedlings came from Fritz Nobis x Rosa glauca, becouse off the blue glue on the leaves and they where growing together, but I am not sure and still doubt. They did not survive the hard winters here outside, except one. But that one did not flower all that years so I have to wait longer. After that first succes of OP I tried it again, but the seeds never germinated in the following years.

Its sibling, Joseph Rothmund, has through the Buck roses. I think Buck saw something that Kordes did not. Kordes seemed to use the orange-red types from the Eglantine hybrids more. Probably because orange was rare back then, and pink was not.
