Hi, Margaret,
Do you live in an area with mild winters? Or, is the container in a a sheltered spot, possible against a warm house wall? That would best explain the leaves persisting. As far as pruning goes, and despite the leaves remaining, treat it as the patio rose it is. Full instructions for pruning 'Sweet Wonder' are here on Shoot, including when to prune. Just add it to your 'Plants I Have' list and you will get links are pruning instructions.
All the best,
Kathy C
