Courtney Love wants rose honor

Rocker Courtney Love has launched a campaign to have a rose named after her.

The Hole singer is keen to join the likes of Barbra Streisand and Marilyn Monroe and has urged flower growers to consider her the next time they're looking for a new hybrid rose name.

In a new YouTube.com video, Love says, "I have it in my will (that) one hundredth 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."

She adds, "To say I'm not crazy about roses is crazy, because I love roses."
