Default Modern Roses Don't Need Summer Pruning:

Most modern roses don't need summer pruning, per se, but spent flowers should be removed promptly to encourage continuous blooming. It makes no difference to the plant if you cut every rose in your garden or if you enjoy the blooms on the plant and cut them off when they're not pretty any more. Removing flowers, whether they're dead or alive, can be considered pruning and should be done thoughtfully. Remember that a new cane that grows from an older cane will never be any fatter than the older cane. Therefore, it's important to cut a long stem on a hybrid tea or on a floribunda spray so that the new cane that grows from the top remaining leaf axil will be sturdy enough to support the new flowers.
