Caring for roses in the winter months:

For the colder, central zones (Zones 5 and 6), winter rose care
requires some work.  Although individual roses may vary
(especially the Species roses), as a rule of thumb those roses
which are not well adapted to Zone 5 or colder winters are

Bermudas
Bourbons
Chinas
Grandifloras
Hybrid Musks Miniatures
Noisettes
Teas and Hybrid Teas

If you haven't already done this, it's not too late to provide some
extra protection: bury the rose, put a protective cage around it, or
transplant it into a suitable container and store it in a protected
area.  It might be too late to dig up a rose in our area, however,
but this is something to keep in mind for future winters.
