Does Cuthbert Grant produce hips?

One way to tell whether your rose will set hips is to wait and see what happens as the blooms fade and die off. If you don't clip the faded blooms and just wait for them to do their "thing" fruit may start to form, then you know your rose sets hips!

An extremely carefree rose, this should be on anyone's short list of roses to grow in a no-spray garden. Completely Winter hardy as well. Why isn't this seen far more often??

I have grown Cuthbert Grant in a zone 5, part-sun garden in Nebraska (hot and humid). The plant had no disease and grew to huge proportions, about 6', had thick sturdy canes. The blooms were beautiful but small in proportion to the shrub. I had a heavy bloom in the spring and a light bloom in the fall. I had a grouping of three. For all of the space that they took up, I did not get much color. For now, I am trying some other shrubs to see if I could get more bloom in that spot.

Right now I'm absolutely in love with my CG. It came through a 5a, Central NY winter with zero damage. It must have 50 blooms on it at the moment. Now that the plant is established, the blooms are distinctly scented. I could swear the color has even deepened, some blooms edging close to purple. Last year I got three good flushes. I see no reason why it should be stingy this year.

Cuthbert really is a winner.

My C.G. is in it's second year now, and I've been forced to revise my opinion of its scent. Last year, the few blooms it produced had a scent that was barely on the edges of perceptibility. This year, the first flush of blooms had very slightly more, but it seemed evanescent, disappearing early in the life of the bloom. Now in its second flush of 2008, I'd have to say that the scent has doubled, and lasts longer. Granted - practically nothing times two still isn't much. The scent remains very light, but at least now it's clearly detectable. I'm not sure if it's the weather, or if the plant is getting slowly happier, or what. I just hope this trend continues.

UPDATE, Autumn 2008: The third flush of the year has resulted in highly fragrant blooms. In fact, I was out tying up the plant, and suddenly caught a whiff of something I couldn't identify. It turned out to be one of C.G.'s blooms a foot or so below my face. The scent was oddly herbal, with earthy/musky undertones. Not what I would immediately call a classic rose scent, but nice just the same.
