Rose hips

My grandpa's rose plant never seems to get any hips. Does anyone know why? By the way, it is eden climber. Does it even get hips??? :oops:

Re: Rose hips

As far as I can tell most roses will make hips if they are pollinated well. If they don't get pollinated, then no hips form.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
