Easton's Bible Dictionary
Hebrews `arar, (Jeremiah 17:6; 48:6), a species of juniper called by the Arabs by the same name (`arar), the Juniperus sabina or savin. "Its gloomy, stunted appearance, with its scale-like leaves pressed close to its gnarled stem, and cropped close by the wild goats, as it clings to the rocks about Petra, gives great force to the contrast suggested by the prophet, between him that trusteth in man, naked and destitute, and the man that trusteth in the Lord, flourishing as a tree planted by the waters" (Tristram, Natural History of the Bible).
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A low shrub (Erica, / Calluna, vulgaris), with minute evergreen leaves, and handsome clusters of pink flowers. It is used in Great Britain for brooms, thatch, beds for the poor, and for heating ovens. It is also called heather, and ling.

2. (n.) Also, any species of the genus Erica, of which several are European, and many more are South African, some of great beauty.

3. (n.) A place overgrown with heath; any cheerless tract of country overgrown with shrubs or coarse herbage.
