Rose of Sharon is a common name that has been applied to several different species of flowering plants that are valued in different parts of the world. It is also a biblical expression, though the identity of the plant referred to is unclear and is disputed among biblical scholars.

If you study the lyrics of the title track, you will see exactly what happened over the previous four years.
