La Marne - Covered with cluster of rich pink flowers that boast rich creamy centers, this rose is the wonderful cross between a Polyantha (Mme Norbert Levavasseur) and a China (Comtesse du Cayla), making it also extremely alkaline and drought tolerant. In the early spring, the blooms are shaded a darker rose as seen here, but the typical bright salmon-pink shading appears as the heat index rises. Introduced as a Polyantha in 1915, the handsome shrub has remained a favorite for many gardeners. The bluish-green foliage is very distinctive on this four to five foot shrub. It prefers open places, plenty of sun and can be grown as a hedge. Its alkaline tolerance is outstanding. Many specimens of this rose can be found in old German settlements in Central Texas.
