 rose
      See rise

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Rose
    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].)
