Do roses get lots of diseases that you have to spray them for?
I've always been afraid to grow roses because they have a reputation for being temperamental. Don't they get lots of disease problems you have to spray for?

Some roses are indeed susceptible to disease problems, black spot in particular. In humid climates, most roses may need protective fungicide sprays to grow well in the landscape. However, some old garden roses and many new hybrids are extremely resistant to fungal diseases.
