swamp rose

This is Rosa palustris in the family Rosaceae:

As with the last flower posted, this was taken in May of 2009, at the Brandon property.  This plant is native to the United States and Canada and can be found throughout the eastern half of the two countries.  I have seen this plant often around Mississippi and the blooms vary from the pink seen above to an almost pure white.  The blooms have a very subdued sent that must be purposefully sampled.
