bareroot tree roses not leafing out (help this newbie out) zone 8b

I bought 4 John Paul tree roses that were shipped bareroot for my zone at the end of February. I planted them a few days later. We had some very late snow this year and a week after I planted them we got some light snow.

So here I am about 5 weeks later and they have not started leafing out, some parts of the canes are turning green but for the majority they are still brown. The rest of the roses are leading out in the garden and I saw see JP tree roses at a local nursery that are leafed out.

I'm not sure since they were shipped and bare root they may just be a little behind? I noticed my hydrangeas that were shipped are a few weeks behind as well.

This is my first time planting roses so any insight would be welcome.

The two pictured below are the most "green" of the 4.
