ADAS is a myrtle.Myrtle has a smell, but no taste. It symbolizes those who do not teach the Torah, but do good deeds.

ARAVA - willow.There is no smell or taste in it. These are people who do not do good deeds and do not study the Torah. Simple ARABA acquires a symbolic meaning only together with LULAW, ADAS and ETROG.

Sometimes we look more like a palm branch.
When, possessing Knowledge, we do not follow him in life.

Sometimes we like a myrtle.
We do good deeds, but do not study spiritual scripture.

Sometimes we are willows. We live without the Spirit and without good deeds.

And sometimes we, as citrus - etrog, are full of spiritual knowledge and perform good deeds, following it.
