Medicinal Herbs of the Bible
In biblical times, plants were not designated with a genus and species name as they are now. Therefore, scholars make their "best guess" as to which plants the bible referred. Although there is a plant called Rose of Sharon, it did not grow in the middle east so could not have been the Rose of Sharon in Song of Solomon 2:1 this plant is read as Chavatzelet HaSharon (Hebrew חבצלת השרון) and is a bulb more like a daffodil. The plants growing here are representative of the biblical medicinals and are as closely represented as possible considering both scholarly and climate constraints.
