I have  Pride of England own root rose plant that I planted in 12 -15 inch container I thought it would take

awile to get started. Now it is starting to out grow the pot and I'm affraid it will out grow the pot before

the weather cools because I live in Key West, Florida. How cool does it have to be before I can

safely put it in a bigger pot (24 in.). How will fare if I repot with the temptures in the middle 80?

As long as the root ball isn't disturbed, you may transplant a rose from one container to another, or from a container into the ground any time of the year. It's only when you damage the integrity of the root ball that you experience problems. Even if you do loosen some roots, putting the container in less than full sun and reflected and radiated heat, and keeping it well watered until it shows new growth will increase your chances of success greatly.

Pride of England is easily one of the largest HT/GR rose plants I have ever grown. The plant is on scale with Lynn Anderson, Selfridges, Lloyd Center Supreme, Solitaire or Touch of Class. I would put it somewhere that has a lot of vertical room so that you can enjoy it fully.
