Rose Blue Moon seems to have gone dormant?

Hey all - I bought a rose back in February. I bought from J Parkers (who I understand is a trusted supplier?) and it is called a "Rose Blue Moon". 

I planted it firmly in a wide pot pretty much straight away (around 20th Feb) and out it outside in a sunny spot. 

I am just a bit confused because, as the garden started waking up in late Feb / March, every  started to grow, the tulips started to make an appearance, the deciduous plants started to go green, but this lady did NOTHING. 

It is my very first time planting a rose so I am wondering if any of you more experienced rose growers might have some words of advice? 

Picture below.

    There is no sign of life at all.
    Sorry, but I think it is dead, not dormant. Contact Parker’s and ask for your money back.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I agree. Send them your picture.
    I've had refunds from J Parkers without any problems (when things have turned out to be wrongly labelled) but they did ask for pictures.
