Miniatures that look (or act) like OGRs?

tropicanarama(Chicago 5b)March 31, 2006

I'm moving and losing a large rose garden, but I think I've just got to have a collection of roses no matter what. Can anyone recommend some minis that either resemble or behave like old garden roses? All the minis that I see seem to look like tiny little hybrid teas, but I'd like to find something that has the generosity of bloom and the lovely old-fashioned shape of an OGR. Do they exist? Thanks!

I just bought a very beautiful mini at Wal mart that looks like Souvenir de la Malmaison, except it's blooming at a very short height. The blooms are large for a mini, so I'm wondering what the heck it is...a floramini, an OGR that will end up big, or what. It is slightly fragrant. No name on it.
