Plants in The Phoenix and The Turtle

Only one plant mention in The Phoenix and The Turtle, the Arabia tree (possibly the acacia), which has also been mentioned in Othello and (indirectly) in the Tempest, among the Shakespeare plays I’ve looked through so far. Although the Othello mention suggests a somewhat different meaning, the arabia tree appears mainly to be known as a unique tree in which the immortal bird Phoenix built its nest before dieing and coming to life again. The Phoenix’s nest, wiki adds, was apparently made out of cinnamon.
