Because of its neat, healthy, full growth and repeat blooming, La Marne is a good choice for a rose hedge, especially in sunny, open areas. Of course, it is also useful as a specimen and in perennial beds, also.
La Marne is frequently used as a landscape hedge. The vase-shaped bush stands erect and creates a neat, well groomed appearance. La Marne requires full sun for optimum performance and to maintain a hedge-like form. Several leading horticulturists feel that this cultivar is one of our very best roses for the Fall.
