Plant Profile: Rosa La Marne

Large loose clusters of 9-20 flowers are produced in continuous flushes throughout the season.   The flowers are 2” across,   single to semidouble, and lack fragrance.   They have ruffled deep pink petals with white centers and yellow stamens. The small vase-shaped bushes are vigorous and have  almost thornless stems and dark green glossy leaves that may get mildew in damp weather but are generally easy to grow. Because of its tolerance of heat, drought, and poor soil, together with its high pest tolerance and outstanding landscape performance, La Marn has been designated as an Earth Kind rose.
