Sounds as though it's got black spot, Hijuju. Did the leaves have blotches on them and then turn yellow before they all dropped off? Some roses are much more prone to this than others. If it is that, and a picture would help to identify it as MG says, you need to start spraying with a fungicide in the spring before the leaves have started into full growth, and then every 2 weeks after that. 'Toprose' is what I use. Annie

some of my other roses have black spot and the leaves have not dropped off...we always spray the roses at the first sign of black spot anyway
