I live in zone 7b, and I usually cut back my roses around Valentine's Day. This fall we had a very early cold snap, my roses were full of blooms and buds. I left them that way, figuring it would get taken care of when I cut them back. Now we are having very mild weather, and the stupid things are covered all over with new growth. Should I just leave them alone and cut them back at my usual time? We often get another very cold spell in January. Thanks for your help!

Leave them alone and cut when you normally do. My roses are doing the same thing and I KNOW we will get another cold blast before April.
It's a rose!!! It has nothing to do with life and death.

Thank you so much, Ken! Someone in my zone, too. I love your white tiger. Thumbs up
