Most Disease Resistant Mini???

I have a spot in my garden in front of a climbing Westerland (orange in color) that would be perfect for a mini. As with all my roses I only buy that which blooms alot & is disease free - or very resistant to disease. I was thinking a yellow, or a multi color, would look good there. Any recommendations?

Fancy Pants is a good one.

Here are some recommendations from an older thread: disease resistance. There is a killer set of photos of Green Ice over on the Rose Gallery, it is one pretty rose.

I have a Hilde... It sat near black spot infested roses without contracting the disease [not sprayed]. Beautiful rose, too -- light red with hints of white near the center, dark foliage. It can also be dark pink in color. Has a nice scent. Tough little rose, though. Grows and blooms like crazy. Will bloom within 3wks of sprouting spring growth and continue to bloom until frost. The heat doesn't effect it much either [been topping 100 here] though it sits in full sun from sunrise to about 4PM.

Here's mine:

'Apricot Twist' is the most disease free miniature here in the PNW. 'Green Ice' comes a close second.
