Rosa x alba 'Alba Semiplena'
Literally "white roses", derived from R. arvensis and the closely allied R. alba. These are some of the oldest garden roses, probably brought to Great Britain by the Romans. The shrubs flower once yearly in the spring with blossoms of white or pale pink. The shrubs frequently feature gray-green foliage and a climbing habit of growth . (Wikipedia)
This was done during a botanical painting class at Cornell Plantations at Cornell University with Camille Doucet. You can see Cami's work here.
