Unbelievably, it's a carnivorous plant. :confused:

Hampshire Carnivorous Plants have named a new Sarracenia hybrid plant in honour of Johnny Marr. They will be unveiling the plant to the world for the first time at this year’s Royal Horticultural Society Show, held at Tatton Park Knutsford Cheshire (21-25 July).

Matt Soper of Hampshire Carnivorous Plants said “ I have been a fan of Johnny’s for some years, and 'play' guitar myself, as does my daughter. I have only named two of my own hybrids previously, one for her, Rebecca and the other, my wife, Juthatip. I understand you must get many requests for Johnny Marrs' attention, but hoped he might be interested in my approach for introducing a new plant in his honour at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show, almost 'home ground'."

Oh how cool :). My mom has one of the McCartney roses. She loves that thing :lbf:. It'd be neat if she'd go for the Macca rose having a friend :lbf:.

Wow, could go to town with innuendo about this one as it's
a carniverous plant and all, but I won't.
I'll just say it's sweetly lovely for Johnny to have a plant
named after him.
I bet Morrissey wished he had one named after him as well.
Of course not a carniverous one though....
That would seem both offensive and gay, I guess!?!
