Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Āropita (आरोपित) refers to the “laying out (planting) (of holy plants)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.22 (“Description of Pārvatī’s penance”).—Accordingly, after Menā spoke to Pārvatī: “[...] Suppressing the delusion with fortitude after a long time Pārvatī, the daughter of Himavat, got herself initiated for the observance of ritualistic activities. She performed penance in the excellent holy centre Śṛṅgitīrtha which (later) acquired the title ‘Gaurī-Śikhara’ due to her performance of penance thereon. O sage, many beautiful holy plants were laid there [i.e., āropita] by Pārvatī for testing the fruitfulness of her penance. [...]”.
