There are two different colors of blooms on this Joanna Hill plant. Per HMF, light yellow, aging to cream is the color of this rose, but as you can see, I have some very 'red' blooms on this little plant. Has anyone ever seen this before?

Is this a budded plant? Or is it growing on its own roots?

The form of the two colors of blooms seem quite different. Do they open to look more alike?

Here is a closer up of each bloom. So strange!

OK. Are the red blooms on a branch off of growth with the light blooms?

In other words, are they DEFINITELY on the same plant? OR, does the growth with red blooms come up separately?

Because it looks to me like cuttings from two different cultivars may be in the same pot?

They are on different stems. I received them last fall, so the plant is small still, planted out this spring.
I suppose that maybe 2 different plants somehow got put in the same pot, appearing as one.

That is how it appears to me.

I agree with Jeri. It's the only plausible explanation.

Then, yes. I think you got a "bonus" plant.

I think Burling still sometimes sticks multiple cuttings in a pot. In this case, a cutting of another cultivar got stuck.

Exactly! I'd like to know what red I've got!

I'd wait until it grows up some, so you can see a bit about the habit, mature foliage, mature blooms and their size, and so forth.
