When do I plant roses in Oklahoma?
In Oklahoma, if you’re transplanting roses (roses that you already have in your garden or have come from someone else’s garden) it’s best to do so while the roses are still dormant. So transplant in either February or in March.
The same applies if you’ve bought bare-root roses. Obviously, bare-root roses will be available for sale at the time they should be planted in your garden – February and March in Oklahoma.
For container-grown roses, you can plant those at any time throughout the year. Nevertheless, ideally, container-grown roses should be planted well in advance of the first fall frosts arriving. This will allow your roses to settle into their new home and put a bit of growth on before dormancy.
