Bloom of the Day

Mortimer Sackler

An English Rose raised by David Austin in 2002. The flowers are medium-sized, of delicate and unusual shape. The color is a pale shell pink and the scent is sweet with a hint of fruit. The right to name this rose was auctioned for the National Trust in England, and won by Theresa Sackler, wife of the international philanthropist. I call it "Morty".
