I'd plant some of the following tried-and-true roses (recommended by Vermont Cooperative Extension because of their performance in demonstration garden trials):
Grandma's Blessing - Its dusty pink recurrent double blossoms combine well with perennials.
Macy?s Pride - The buds start out as creamy yellow then open to a creamy white.
Funny Face - Each pink and white bloom is unique. The bush is compact and rounded in shape.
Hot Wonder - Flowers all season with pink florescent blooms and disease resistant foliage.
Sunrise Sunset - A groundcover rose with fuschia pink flowers with an apricot yellow center.
My Hero - Satiny foliage with red blossoms that fade to deep pink.

Enjoy your new roses!
