I bought this last year from HD. The bucket didn't have a label, nor did the rose have a label. It was marked as "Markdown Annual". I bought a magenta colored one and a lighter pink one. They both made it & the magenta one is now blooming. No discernible scent, EXTREMELY tiny flowers. I may have to move this as it's gonna get lost. The entire plant is about the size of a football. The leaves are small and the blooms are about the same size as a quarter. The blooms are in a cluster type form. I believe they have like 10 petals. No thorns.

Any idea?

I don't know what it is, but I think I have one like it - similarly obtained with a couple of dollars left over on a gift card.

They look like miniature roses. Miniature roses are bred to produce smaller plants and flowers, rather than full-size roses. They are often used as short term houseplants or table top decorations.

Toni, might be one of these. Look at Rubellite

These are also very small, but somewhat larger than football size.

I agree with Rubellite. Last year the stores around here carried some cool little minis and that was one of them. . I bought several, and they look like your photo. This one has stayed small.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.
