Roses tend to be subject to a variety of fungal diseases. A major part of rose care is managing the environment around them to reduce damp conditions that encourage the colonization of harmful fungi. Root rot is caused by fungal growth in the soil; the pathogens are wide-ranging and favored by wet conditions. They can spread to other plants and might be present in the rose when you buy it or originate elsewhere in the garden.
