I had that question, too, just recently since I was concerned about frost.
The resounding answer was that January is the time to plant bare root roses
in our climate - Sunset Western Garden Climate Zone 13.  It seems that roses
are pretty hardy and just plain pretty.

I live in Yuma. Lowes and Home Depot are currently selling bare root roses.
If I buy them now, how long can I keep them before planting. When is the
best time to plant bare root roses?
