Nematodes and Fortuniana

I just read an older thread where a person from Florida was advised to buy only roses on Fortuniana stock. Otherwise, roses in the South supposedly don't last in the ground more than five years because nematodes eventually find the roots and the plant dies.

Is this true?

Fortuniana was also touted for all sorts of others reasons - healthier, larger, more bloomy plants overall.

I am not sure what to believe as this sounds somewhat unlikely.
