It probably would require strong protective measures in zone 4a. It's supposed to be hardy only to zone 5b.

The spot you've chosen sounds good, but I know that people in the colder zones also create mounds of compost or leaves at the base of a rose for extra protection. I'm in a warm zone, so I'll leave those instructions to someone who has done this.
