Is it bad to plant desert museum Palo verde tree in the winter?

I just bought a 10 gallon desert museum Palo verde tree from Home Depot. I’ve started digging the hole in a sunny area of my back yard, but then I read that you should plant it in the summer.
Should I still go ahead and plant it? If not, is it ok to stay in the plastic container until summer?
I live in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, zone 10. The soil is clay. Temps right now average 65-75 in the daytime, low 50s at night. We just had our first rain of the year.
Thank you for your help!
