I was thinking of getting Lady of Shallot roses. I know they can grow up to 4ft x 4ft, but will a (W)35inch x (H)25inch pot be big enough?

Yes, at least for X number of years. Any woody plant in a container may eventually reach a root-bound state, but this is not an immediate concern. At that point, the plant does need to be either potted up or planted out. Many gardeners, simply replace the declining plant at that time.

Annual or occasional root-pruning is another option for maintaining plants in containers indefinitely. That is how some bonsai survive in shallow pots for decades or more. Root pruning a large shrub or tree is significant labor. There is always some risk of stressing a root-pruned plant to the point of damage or death, but if it it is done carefully and in the proper season the risk is small.

The Lady of Shalott™ Rose (Rosa x 'Ausnyson') is a full-petaled (60), fragrant, orange rose.
It was bred by David Austin and introduced in 2009.
