It looks like a fungus, bacterial or gall which is caused by scratches. Don't dig it out yet, but give the plant some extra good soil and take the stones off the crown. I wouldn't weigh the plant down with the rocks at all as every plant needs oxygen down to the roots. Mulch it with good manure, but don't tent it up, (volcano style) but rather 3-4 inches out and have the depression closer to the main plant. Roses are tender to moisture and fungus infections. Protect it from wind and other stresses until it gets some leaves onto it.
