For least transplant stress, the dormant season (February or March) is a good time to plant. Next on the list would be spring, followed by the fall months. Avoiding planting in mid-summer is about the only caution. If you have no choice but to plant now, expect some transplant stress (wilting foliage and suspension of bloom). Keep your rose watered well (a deep soaking twice a week). Hope this answers your question.
