I was named from Song of Solomon 2:1. "I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys."
Here is a modern-day Rose of Sharon (not thought to be the rose of Sharon mentioned in Scripture):
A humble sort of flower, really. But did you know that hummingbirds like it?
The Rose of Sharon is a shrub or small tree. It comes in various shades of white, lavender, or purple, but I like the white ones best.
When my parents lived in Freedom, Indiana, they had a couple of Rose of Sharon bushes out by the barn, next to the gravel road. One was white, and one lavender. They probably could have used some pruning. It's funny, I don't remember the hummingbirds out by those bushes, but I do remember that the bees liked them.
