The tall plants are standard roses. If you in a zone that has winter temperatures that fall below freezing the plant will lose it's leaves. You would prune the top (round ball) just like you would prune any other rose.

Here's a link for more info

I hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cathy Lara added this to Houzz Rule: No Dogs Allowed?
Be prepared for some digging around a few hedges and bushes — it's just dirt. But if the dog leaves a smelly gift, it's perfectly fine to ask the guardian to scoop up the poop in a plastic bag. The Emily Post Institute says that as long as you ask politely, the guardian probably will not mind at all.
This garden from today is almost a mirror image of Morris’ Kelmscott Manor garden. The line of plain, standard roses, not always an easy plant to use in garden design, performs the same task it did in Morris’ garden: It leads the eye to the front door.Morris was upset by plant breeders of the time. He saw them as meddling with nature, especially with newer varieties of his favorite flower, the rose. He preferred his flowers to be simple and disliked changes to them, such as the trend of creating double flowers.
