  Madonna gets flower created in her honour
Updated 21 December 2002, 11.54
Heather
Pop queen Madonna has had a flower specially created for her.

The new type of heather has been grown to thank her for helping put the Scottish Highlands on the tourism map.

Some of the heather will be sent to Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie for their second wedding anniversary.

The couple married in December 2000 at a glitzy ceremony at Skibo Castle, near Dornoch.
