Does this rose set hips?

Seems more plausible that this rose is from the 1977 version of Taxi.

Yes. Despite both the 69 and 77 roses being red; and the 69 flori possibly more likely to produce a mini-flora, versus the 77 hybrid tea.
But the clincher for me is the perfume with the 77 hybrid tea 'Taxi' being a descendant of 'Fragrant Cloud'. I've changed the parentage from the 1969 'Taxi' to the 1977 'Taxi'. Thanks again Michael.

That, and the raiser used the 1977 one in another rose :D

Overnight Scentsation has magnificently fragrant blooms that make great boutonnieres and is well worth growing, but it is not winter hardy. I lost four of my original five plants over two winters while they were lying down under thick snow cover (perhaps Zone 5 on the US scale). Now I bring mine in the house as a pot plant over winter.

As with most of my minis here in Central New York, mine dies back to the ground every year. This ordinarily wouldn't be a problem - most of them just pop right back up. O.S., however, has proven to be an absolute blackspot magnet for me - moreso than any rose I've ever grown, period. It almost completely defoliated last year. I'm amazed it survived the winter at all. It's a wonderful plant when it's healthy, and the fragrance really is on a par with my old damasks, but if it repeats this behavior this year, it's bound for the shovel.
