Did you know.....

Overview

Throughout the world you will find different plants named Rose of Sharon. The flowers of one Rose of Sharon plant, Hibiscus syriacus or Shrub Althea, are very similar to the flowers of Hypericum calycinum, also called Rose of Sharon. Although the flowers do look similar, the plants are quite different. The reference to each plant is colloquial, and depending on where you are in the world it will mean whichever plant inhabits that area.

Native Location

The flat, open plains of Sharon in northern Israel are populated with many wild flowers that grow from bulbs. Most of them are varieties of crocus, asphodel or narcissus, and it is generally accepted by Hebrew and Christian scholars that these are the flowers referred to in Song of Solomon, What a beautiful source of inspiration for a Granny, don't you agree?
