You want to purchase Grade #1 roses they have at least three strong good canes that do not need to be pruned more then 1/2 to 1 1/2 inch or so.
Tons of roses are sold bare root you probably have them already!
Check the stems/canes well for bruises and growth.
Not sure when you can plant them but I am guessing now; up to pretty soon if they are sold now. You can follow what I have written, almost ever rose I bought was bare root Grade1. See the tip that has to be pruned; you really do not want more then that when you buy them! Inspect the whole plant check for borer holes in the knuckle and canes.
When you unwrap it check for DRY mulch in thee if it is do not fret too late they are already at their new home. Just let it sit for a little bit longer and water a little bit more often slowly it will be fine. I bought 2 sorry looking bare roots, Joseph’s coat was one of them ,just water EARLY in the MORNING.Now, can you take a pic of the package it comes in?
I almost exclusively buy from Tyler Texas; I am loyal to them because they have a good variety of breeders, although I'm not certain about their packers *LOL (drunk & mislabeling )
I love them all .Now..keep an eye out for blackspot, not sure how you would even get that in Texas but...one never knows.
There you have it !
Oh BTW white/ light colored roses do attract Jap.Beetles,not sure if that is a concern for you or not ..
JFK was pretty not very fragrant but JB got him a few times then started on QE which truly bothered me thus causing the long nose to come out*LOL
I was ready early in the am for them ..I did get them!*LOL
