She has a specific one in mind...
Rolling Stone reports that Courtney Love wants to join a class of celebrities with roses named after them, which currently includes names like Barbra Streisand, Marilyn Monroe and tennis player Victoria Azarenka. She revealed her wish in the latest #CourtneyOn Youtube series. She said she wants a "a hybrid rose that's glittering and silver" (because "you can hybrid anything") to be named after her.
A source claims that "naming a rose is a complex operation that can take 2-7 years", which includes creating a hybrid with a breeder, testing it and then registering it with the American Rose Society, the country's "oldest single-plant horticultural society."
Love added: "I have it in my will [that] 1/100th of my Estate goes towards the development of a silver glitter rose ... just in case I get hit by a tractor in a corn field. To say I'm not crazy about roses is crazy. Because I love roses."
