Neng - I live in Edmonton and grow many things that are rated Zone 4. For your rose I would provide it with a mulch in the winter and realize that it will require pruning in the spring.
What rose is it?

Thanks Joan. That particular Rudie is over by my neighbour Phyllis's fence. Every time I see it I have to sing the song. She probably thinks I am nuts. Or has a very limited repetoire.

Your roses are mostly hybrids so yes, you do need to provide extra winter protection.

I'd love to visit you in the spring. That would be very nice. Send me a PM and we'll make arrangements. :D
