Size of minis in zone 8

I just purchased three minis because I thought they were so pretty - now, I am wondering how large they are likely to be in my zone. They are Jean Kenneally, Memphis Queen, and Snow Ruby. Does anyone know what I can expect from any or all of these?

I've been growing Memphis King for 2 years in a large container and it's about 2 1/2 feet right now. The blooms last forever even in our heat. The bush habit has been kind of awkward, but is starting to fill out now. I don't currently grow the others on your list.

I have grown Jean Kenneally in a large container for over two years and it grew to about three feet. It is a rose that doesn't seem to mind being pruned, so you can keep it smaller, but it's beautiful if you give it room to grow.
