Witches Broom in roses
Can I plant a different shrub such as azelias where I have removed the infected roses? Or will the infection be passed on to them?

The virus that caused the witches broom should not cause any harm to the Azelias or any other plants. You could also replant a rosebush there if you change out the soils in the area removing all the root material you can.
