Any ideas about this mini?

Greetings! I had good luck with a clematis ID over on that forum so thought I would turn my attention to a mystery rose that is planted in my front yard. It is planted in a rather shady location (obviously not by a rosarian!) but doesn't seem to mind too much. The entire bush is about 2 feet tall/wide; don't know if it would be bigger in a sunnier location. It has coral-pink sprays of HT-shaped flowers with minimal fragrance. The flowers are about 2 inches across. It's a pretty thorny bush. Here are some pictures. Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks!

If you want more pictures or info, just let me know.

RE: Any ideas about this mini?

There are many miniature roses in commerce, so I can't be sure.

The bud form and foliage remind me of minis in the Parade series from Poulsen in Denmark.

Parade roses are usually sold at supermarkets, rather than plant nurseries, and meant to be used as disposable table decorations.

However, any of us have learned that these little rose bushes can often survive and thrive if we re-plant them in decent soil. I grow one called Heidi that is scentless, coral-pink and thorny like yours.

I will put a link to a listing with photos and descriptions:
