Description 2009 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ~~ A beautiful Jacobite rose, (x alba Alba Maxima), displays its beauty in the fullness of the summer sun.
The Jacobite rose is the double version of the White Rose of York and dates to the 16th century. This is the white rose worn as a symbol of support for 'the Young Pretender', Bonnie Prince Charlie, whose attempt to seize the British throne in 1745 ('the Rising') ended in failure and death for many of the rebels.
Descended from the European wild dog rose, R. canina, this rose is hardy and easy to cultivate but has a more refined appearance than wild roses. Digitally painted from a macro shot taken in Connecticut in August 2009.
25% of all sales of this picture will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, which sponsors research into a cure for breast cancer.
