Those roses can be planted just when any other rose plant is planted in your climate zone.
I want to point out that the time to plant roses in your garden, depends on your climate.

You can also contact your local Rose Society for help. They are always happy to help rose gardeners.
There are actually 2 planting times for roses, fall and spring.
If you dont plant in the fall, the best time to plant roses is early spring or late winter, if you live in a cold climate zone where temperatures drop below -10 Fahrenheit.
It is important that ALL danger of frost is gone and the soil is workable and not frozen.
The best time depends on when spring arrives in your 'neck of the woods'.
Fall planting is great, because it gives the rose bush time to grow feeder roots, before it goes dormant when frost arrives.
That means it will grow and bloom much quicker when it comes out of dormancy and after you have done the spring pruning.
If you live in a warm climate zone, such as California or Florida, or other places in the World where winters are very mild or warm, the best time to plant your roses in a warm climate is in the fall, late fall or during winter December or January.

The best time to plant roses is in spring, when the plants have the longest growing season ahead in which to get established.
If you do it during hot weather, be sure to deep water your roses frequently.
Also be sure to take care of the rose's roots, don't let them dry out.
