I've grown Chloris in a pot for no less them 15 years and never got more than a few blooms from it.
Last year I planted it out in my south-East facing front garden. It made it through Canadian Prairie winter, green to the tip.

Have others used Chloris? HMF list no offspring.

....a few comments on this rose would be deeply appreciated. With a zone 3b hardiness and thornlessness. I though
Chloris may offer a path to winter hardy thornless yellow roses.

I've never grown it, although I see it is available for sale on the Cornhill Nursery website.

Robert Osborne, the owner of Cornhill, has a short description of it in his book "Hardy Roses," described as the same as you have, also noting it is black spot resistant. He also mentions it is vigorous and easy to root.

Comments on the GardenWeb forums sometimes mention the hips dropping.

Great to know it does well for you. How do find the fragrance?
