So far I am really happy with Cinco de Mayo even though I usually prefer the fuller roses. I have it in a standard tree form and the new foliage comes in really deep bronze and stayed healthy throughout the year (I do not spray). The color really goes nicely with my predominantly warm tones garden.

oh I wish I could have tree roses... they wouldn't survive here and I'm not about to try the Minnesota Tip. I was thinking about using hotwater heater pipe insulation for the "trunk" and some kind of heavy wrap for the top.. you think that might help? Doubt it, especially w/the winter we just had. :(

Fuller roses *are* my fav, but I just love the color scheme on this rose! (excuse the weeds)

I'm glad I bought that rose. I like the colors too! There was another one called "Hot Cocoa" but I decided on this one instead.

I have my first cinco de mayo this year also. Its already blooming. I think it will be a champion in the blooming catagory. I hear its almost always blooming when established.

I am sure your roses will do well for you. Were they grafted roses? If so did you plant the bud union below ground for winter protection? I don't have any of the ones you mentioned but I do have HOT COCOA, which is a really nice rose.
