Answer: Your rose is setting seed, yes. Roses produce what is called hips and these do contain the seeds. During the growing season, these are removed when the roses are deadheaded, meaning each time you cut off the faded flowers. In the fall, you should stop deadheading and let the rose set hips; this helps it slow its growth, harden off and prepare for the coming winter cold. So, it would be better to leave it on the plant. Some roses are known for having large and ornamental hips which provide an extra season of interest in the garden.
