Several of your photos bear no resemblance to Gypsy Sunblaze. It's a red rose with a lighter reverse. Many of your photos are of an apricot blend with a darker reverse.

This photo seems to show both bloom colors that are shown here in several photos, looks like there may be a second rose right next to the true Gypsy Sunblaze?

Yes, there's more than one rose there. It may even have been sold that way, with cuttings from two different roses in the same container.

Actually, I'm not so sure the red one is Gypsy Sunblaze either. I have Gypsy Sunblaze and it's a red blend with a golden reverse. Unfortunately, the only picture I have of mine is pretty lousy and doesn't show up very gold, but it does show that the reverse is not red. There's no difference between the front and back of the petals on Daylilybaby's red rose. It isn't a red blend.



Here's an HMF photo of what it looks like:

This one was a good shot too showing the yellow reverse. http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=21.193952

Actually, I am not 100% sure either. If anyone of you can identify the true type of my Roses, I would greatly appreciated!

I'll move your photos to the generic rose page. You can try to get an ID in the Rose Forum, but I'm afraid you won't have much luck. These are photos of at least two roses, a red one and an apricot blend. There are hundreds and hundreds of miniature roses, and I would bet that almost half of them are either red or apricot because those are popular colors for mini-roses. If you remember the name of the nursery where you bought them, that would narrow down the search considerably.
