Your rose tree can be kept at a 4-5' height with annual pruning. They typically won't grow much taller than that. Rose trees are grafted onto vigorous root stock so to keep yours healthy each winter you only need to wrap the graft (the swollen area on the main stem, just beneath the branches, to protect it from winter cold. Best wishes with your landscape!
