Gardeners' Notes:

La Marne has been an excellent rose for me in my humid zone 7 garden. I have had no problems with disease-even when my nearby climber was covered in blackspot this one never got it. I get repeat flushes of bloom that start light pink and fade to a whitish color. Very pretty and bushy with glossy foliage.

I received a free rooted cutting from an Ebay seller, and planted it a few months ago. It has not put on much size in the meantime, but blooms in flushes quite often. The blooms start off as pale pink, progress to almost white, and then develop a green tinge as the petals get ready to fall. I think the sun is pretty intense here in AZ for this rose, and it might do better with the bloom color with a little bit more shade. The blooms on my rose are definitely way lighter in color than the other ones pictured on this site. But so far so good anyway! It will be interesting to see what this rose does as it becomes more established. It responds well to alfalfa pellets and a daily watering. It was also one of the first roses I had to start blooming after they were all planted at the same time.

Update: 4/9/08; Bloomed all year, including the entire winter. Was the only rose I didn't spring prune because it was so full of blooms all winter. Has a very niced rounded globe habit, and has performed very, very well for me. I will be getting more of these for the yard in the near future.

Trouble free, repeat bloomer but kind of spotty in its flushes. Very simple blooms, pale pink fades to almost white, but the flowers stay around for about a week on the bush. Grows on its own stock here in 9a.
