The late actress Natasha Richardson who died following a ski accident in 2009 has been honored by having a flower named after her.

The Natasha Richardson rose was recently unveiled during the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. Richardson's mother, actress Vanessa Redgrave, was on hand for the ceremony.

"Natasha's family, her husband and her boys are so happy that the Natasha Richardson rose will be on view to rose lovers at the Chelsea Flower Show from May 23rd. I share their happiness as Tasha's mother," Redgrave said, according to

The light pink rose will be sold in the UK, with proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"Natasha was all about giving, and so it makes her rose especially appropriate that funds will go towards Make-A-Wish and helping others," Richardson's sister, Joely Richardson said. "Natasha was a keen gardener and would be honored to have a rose created in her memory. Pink was her favorite colour and so we chose this particular rose which is incredibly feminine and joyous; it captures her extreme vitality."
