what to do with a leafed out rose that arrived today in one 7a?

Rosa Zone 7a
2 months ago

I have been looking for the Constance DA wedding rose and finally got one online. However the seller could not hold it and sent it to me from California. It’s fully leafed out. I need to keep it alive till March when I can put it in the ground. I was planning to pot it up and keep it in the garage and hope it will go dormant. But I guess I need to make sure it grows roots BEFORE dormancy. So do I add mycorrhizae as I pot it up? Water it lightly till it roots? Would really appreciate advice. I have planted lots of roses but have never dealt with this kind of (out of season) situation before. Thanks in advance.
