Rose of Sharon is a Biblical name which has been applied to a number of different species of flowering plants in different parts of the world. The name first appeared in English in the King James Version of the Bible in 1611. Varying scholars believe it actually referred to one of the following plants:

Tulipa montana-, a red tulip-like flower prolific in the hills of Sharon
Tulipa agenensis, or the “Sharon tulip”
Lilium candidum, more commonly known as the Madonna lily, a species of lily suggested by some botanists, though likely in reference to the lilies of the valley mentioned in the second part of Song of Solomon
Narcissus
Crocus

It was probably not a red hibiscus as pictured here, but the name is used for these as well.
