 Natalie the Rose Bush - The name of a rose bush planted in the garden of actress Dawn Wells who played Mary Ann, a shipwreck survivor on the sitcom GILLIGAN'S ISLAND/CBS/1964-67.

Natalie Schafer - GILLIGAN'S ISLAND

When Natalie Schafer died in 1991 (she played Miss Lovey Howell - one of the castaways on the series), Dawn Wells asked for something from her estate by which to remember her friend.

With the help of her mother and some friends, Wells dug up some of Natalie's favorite roses. Now, when Dawn walks by one of the transplanted rose bushes, she always says "Hi, Nat." (p. 85 "Mary Ann's Gilligan's Island Cookbook"  Rutledge Hill Press, 1993).
