  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Flowers 
  Very  few  species  of  flowers  are  mentioned  in  the  Bible  although 
  they  abounded  in  Palestine.  It  has  been  calculated  that  in 
  Western  Syria  and  Palestine  from  two  thousand  to  two  thousand 
  five  hundred  plants  are  found  of  which  about  five  hundred 
  probably  are  British  wild-flowers.  Their  beauty  is  often  alluded 
  to  (Cant.  2:12;  Matt.  6:28).  They  are  referred  to  as  affording 
  an  emblem  of  the  transitory  nature  of  human  life  (Job  14:2;  Ps 
  103:15;  Isa.  28:1;  40:6;  James  1:10).  Gardens  containing  flowers 
  and  fragrant  herbs  are  spoken  of  (Cant.  4:16;  6:2).
