Subhash Sharma  Despite its confusing name this 'Rose of Sharon' looks quite exquisite.  While this name has been applied to several different species of flowering plants in different parts of the world in the U.S. this name has been given to 'Hibiscus syriacus'. Varying scholars have suggested that the biblical 'Rose of Sharon' may be one of plants which may include a Crocus, Tulip, Lilium or a daffodil(Narcissus). Taking this as a flower of white hibiscus the message conveyed by this 'Rose of Sharon' would the Symbol of divinity, innocence, purity and royal beauty.

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.
