  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  Many  varieties  of  the  rose  proper  are  indigenous  to  Syria.  The 
  famed  rose  of  Damascus  is  white,  but  there  are  also  red  and 
  yellow  roses.  In  Cant.  2:1  and  Isa.  35:1  the  Hebrew  word 
  _habatstseleth_  (found  only  in  these  passages),  rendered  rose" 
  (R.V.  marg.,  "autumn  crocus"),  is  supposed  by  some  to  mean  the 
  oleander,  by  others  the  sweet-scented  narcissus  (a  native  of 
  Palestine),  the  tulip,  or  the  daisy;  but  nothing  definite  can  be 
  affirmed  regarding  it 
  The  "rose  of  Sharon"  is  probably  the  cistus  or  rock-rose, 
  several  species  of  which  abound  in  Palestine.  "Mount  Carmel 
  especially  abounds  in  the  cistus,  which  in  April  covers  some  of 
  the  barer  parts  of  the  mountain  with  a  glow  not  inferior  to  that 
  of  the  Scottish  heather."  (See  {MYRRH}  [2].)
