David Austin Rose Zone Question

Hi everyone. Waiting for winter to pass by swooning over roses on the internet... I've grown very fond of some of the David Austin Roses... but I tend to plant roses for zone 4 when I can.

Are zone 5 labeled DAs in need of winter protection? We typically have a lot of snow but this year we've had very little so it's hard to say what the future will bring.

I see Princess Alexandra of Kent is hardy to zone 2 so I could always get her but wondered what your thoughts are.

Some I was looking at:
Gentle Hermione
Strawberry Hill
Jude The Obscure

Just a few I've been eyeing... if there are any suggestions too let me know!
