Rose "new dawn" hasn't dropped its foliage ...

A rosa new dawn planted last year is still covered in leaves and a few buds ...I was under the impression it was deciduous .. will this effect it when spring arrives? ... I stopped feeding it in June last year so it isn't that anyway ........
I pull the old ones off after I have pruned in late Feb or early March. Then feed and mulch.
I just follow the rose growers, David Austin, advice!
Suppose it depends on how many roses and what size they are too. A 40ft rambler or a 3ft shrub!
HOW TO PRUNE
1. Cut back by required amount, shaping the rose as you go
2. Remove any dead, dying, diseased and damaged stems
3. Remove and dispose of any foliage that remains
What you will need: Secateurs, loppers, pruning saw, and gloves.
