Your miniature roses should be all right - they seem quite hardy here in zone 
5.  I have one that has grown in a fairly exposed spot for more than 20 
years.  The passiflora is another matter - we can't keep it here so this cold 
might do it in.  This is the first really cold winter since about '96, which 
was a humzinger.  I don't really think the climate change is going to be that 
reliable in our lifetime, or at least mine, which won't be that extensive.  I 
have a friend in Brooklyn who grows all sorts of things that we can't even 
think of here in Westchester, and she always expresses surprise that we can't 
grow what she does. 
Stay warm, Auralie
