Comments La Marne makes a tall, well branched shrub, well covered with foliage. It is highly productive of rose colored flowers that may be flushed with white, like a watercolor. The flowers are pretty nearly single, but can be borne in great profusion. It's a healthy plant that would look good as a hedge, as a shrub, or perhaps in a border.
