I agree that it looks like two different roses are represented in the photos. Do you think that there is any likelihood that the pictures from the San Jose Heritage garden showing larger blooms and leaves may be of Freud's Hula Hoop from 1960 which has a listing on this site but no pictures are shown? The garden may have mislabeled the plant as Moore's Hula Hoop?

I'm thinking some of them may be 'Hoot n Holler' or 'Circus Clown'. Some have mini foliage and some have standard foliage.

The photos from the San Jose Heritage actually look more like Strawberry Ice.

Now I'm severely confused. Is it a mini classed as a flori? I haven't seen it in person, probably because Nicole and Boomerang were super popular in in the 90s/early 2000s.

My photos of Hula Hoop from High Country Rosarium resemble what I remember it looking like from growing it years ago. It's also what I would expect from 44 Stripe. The Heritage photos are not correct for Hula Hoop, but they are correct for Strawberry Ice. I wish the patent photo was better. Even the black and white image there is more reminiscent of this rose than the Heritage plant. Sequoia would have used the floribunda classification for an overly tall mini. This is larger than you would expect from a mini.

This is such a fun little rose! I have it in afternoon sun only around the back of the house and it is blooming away beautifully. The buds open quite fast but then last for a good week at least on the bush without fading. It has very little fragrance but as a way to brighten an out of the way corner of the garden it is certainly excelling.
Mine is own root from High Country Roses.

This rose seems to start out the season with very pale cream and yellow blooms and gradually darkens to a rich peachy pink color as the summer progresses.
It is still my favorite rose for hardiness in cold, and heat, and rain.

I am very impressed with how tough this rose is. It is cane hardy for me in zone 4 and extremely floriferous, putting out big clusters of blooms even though it gets hit by the deer pretty regularly. The fragrance is delightful and can even be enjoyed when standing several paces away. Lovely glossy dark foliage and a nice tidy bush shape make this a rose that leaves nothing to be desired. I am somewhat surprised that it isn't more popular for cold zones.
