If you can store the rose in its container in a garage or other place that remains just above freezing, that will be the easiest way to keep it alive over the winter months. Once it experiences a frost it will go dormant and you can move it to its protected spot. It won't need to be watered regularly because it won't be growing, but you will want to check the soil periodically and add water before it becomes bone-dry. The roots want to be "just damp" but not soggy wet. Or you can dig the rose out of the container, lay it on its side and bury it 12-inches deep in your garden. Dig it up again in the spring and repot. Good luck with your tree rose.
