  • Floral Notes

    This shrub produces its enchantingly beautiful flowers from August to October. The species 'syriacus' is one of several plants commonly referred to as the 'Rose of Sharon' (though it is not believed to be the same 'Rose of Sharon' referred to in the 'Song of Solomon'). It is a symbol of persistent love, persuasion, love and protection.

    Some references say that the name 'Hibiscus' (which was also used by the Ancient Greeks for the marsh-mallow plant, Althaea Officinalis) means "plant that was sacred to the ibis". The ibis was a bird that represented Thoth, the Egyptian god of wisdom, knowledge and writing.
