Winterize knockout roses

I planted 3 knockout rose bushes this spring and want to know how to winterize them. I live in Northeast Ohio and the last 2 winters have been extremely bad. Both had 4 to 6 weeks at or below zero degrees and at least a foot of snow on the ground for 3 months. It’s been 50+ degrees for most of the fall and I saw some new blooms last week so I don’t think it’s too late to winterize.
