I know almost nothing about roses. I have a miniature rose in my perennial bed that needs to be moved to better location. When is the best time to do this?

After it goes completely dormant. Miniature roses are just like standard size but littler and usually self-rooted.

Thanks. I've been reading up a little on roses. I bought it years ago because it was cute, but larger perennials are crowding it out now.

As Daisy said, when it's dormant you can move it. It should wake up in the spring and not even know it was moved. Make sure you dig as big a root ball as possible and keep it intact for the move. The less you disturb the roots the better.
