Mycorrhizal fungi live in close association with rose roots, in a symbiotic relationship. Beneficial mycorrhizae are thought to enlarge the surface of feeder roots, improving their ability to absorb nutrients and water. The overall size of roots can be as much as 25 to 30% larger from the effect of mycorrizae. From the Encyclopedia of Rose Science.
