The present variety of miniature rose was originated by me at Sequoia Nursery located at Visalia, Calif., under conditions of careful control and observation, as a cross between Pinocchio (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 484, expired -- Floribunda) as the seed parent and Little Chief (miniature not patented) as the pollen parent.
