    It doesn't need winter protection as it is a hardy plant. That said, anything can die in a really cold spell. Keeping things under glass in winter protects them but also leaves them open to picking up pests from any nearby plants.....even clean greenhouses can harbour nasty things.....so it is best to leave hardy plants outside.
    There's no reason why you can't plant the rose in the garden now. The roots will be better protected from frost if they are underground rather than in a pot.
