Sowed roses for first time last year and one is still flowering! one stem grew a lot taller than the rest and I am wondering do I cut this back when the flowers die?

I usually cut mine back in Nov' but because some were still in Bloom I left them... but this week because its so mild I've began to cut them back to within 4-6in' of the Ground and cover them in a Mulch.
Come Patricks W/E 2014 I'll cut them back again as growth usually begins earlier and some may appear ragged and require a trim.
