Has flowered a lot, has not set hips, so probably not one to use as a seed parent.

-edit 5/May/2021 - and much like the other new kordes I got, it is now setting hips in the late summer and autumn period. First ripe hip only had 3 seed, none of the hips are particularly large but it's setting them at a fairly useable rate if the seed are fertile.

Mine has at least six OP heps currently.

As for using it as a pollen parent it produces a lot of pollen so I see it being useful in that way also.

Update: OP Seeds are starting to germinate at 2nd of October, 2023. It does produce large seeds and looks to have a relatively good germination rate.

My first year with this Rose, the roses bloomed and lasted 24 hours and then shattered immediately. So I had a discussion with Bob Martin about it and he said give it another year. So here I am in here too and oh my God he was completely right!!
The blooms lasted about four days on the bush and I put them in a vase which they’ve been in there for a couple of days, what an amazing Rose. Now I have to agree with other people about not getting a lot of fragrance from it no matter what time of day but I don’t care because it is a beauty!

Did it get better in terms of shattering?

Wow, this is an amazingly disease resistant rose in the wet PNW. Blooms well and I love the fruity fragrance.
