Rose of Sharon

Song of Songs, 2:1 —

אֲנִי חֲבַצֶּלֶת הַשָּׁרוֹן, שׁוֹשַׁנַּת הָעֲמָקִים

"I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys."

Even though this is almost definitely NOT the flower referred to by Song of Songs, it is a beautiful flower to have growing in one’s backyard. Mine grew “by accident”, a cast-off from one of my neighbors’ plants. It grows like a weed. I just have to trim what’s growing around the little flowering tree.

This is my first submission to Today’s Flowers, which appear every Monday.
