Given the importance of this rose in the development of both cluster-flowered and large-flowered roses, it would be nice to know how this plant grows. It sure would be nice if anyone with experience of growing it could contribute a comment here.

I just posted some information from Herb Swim's book, "Roses - From Dreams To Reality" about Pinocchio (Check the REFERENCES tab). You can read about how he saw the rose from the breeder's eye. Of course, if you find any comments in other references, you are welcome to post them here.

I really enjoy my plant of Pinocchio. I spray twice a month, and I have seen no disease on my plant. It produces flowers singly and in clusters, Overall the flowers are pink but have a coral inner tone when half open in cooler weather. Has a rather nice fragrance but is fleeting.
