Here is a link for you to the Central Florida Rose Society.

Go to there website and look under roses informaiton. Also you can contact them by email to ask this question. Pruning roses varies greatly as to timing from one zone to another. I prune my roses in Colorado in the early spring once the leaf buds start coming forth and the weather has become less likely to have cold dips. I do prune all of my rosebushes down to half their height once they have gone dormant coming up to the winter season. This protects the canes from the cold harsh whipping winds that could otherwise break them off clear down to the ground. During the growing season I dead head my roses after the blooms start dieing back. With Knockout roses you do not need to deadhead them to keep them blooming but it is good to do some deadheading sometimes to keep the bushes formed up nicely.
