Rose of Sharon
Song of Solomon 2:1 – “ I am the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys.”
Often debated, the identity of the “rose of Sharon” most recently has been attributed to the deep crimson Tulipa Sharonensis (also known as T. agenensis and T. montana) which grows in sandy places on the coastal plain of Sharon. In the original text, the Hebrew word habazzeleth comes from a root word meaning bulb, so it is logical that the flower referred to was the beautiful and prolific flower bulb growing on the plains of Sharon: the Tulipa Sharonensis.
