Mosses, Lichens and Fungus

Blue Moss (found in Myth Drannor only) http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/m/mossph54.html
Button Fungus (E.E.) for bait worms, animal fat, or even a scrap of colored cloth - to catch the big ones use BUTTON FUNGUS that grows on the underside of birch limbs - it looks like tiny mushrooms covered with brown fur and smells like month-old cheese (the trout especially love it)
Meldquat - a crimson lichen found inside hollow logs particularly camphor - this soft lichen tastes like lemons and is highly prized by Cormyr gourmets - be careful around camphor logs, scorpions adore the scent of medquat and like to cover themselves in it
Ivory moss - groves of alders, hickories and bitternuts in the Midwood - often grows near moonferns


Rye Grass which the red deer feed off of (EE)
Wiregrass adorn a few hillsides in the Rimwood
Zebra Grass
Peppergrass east of Hap
Quack Grass


Moonfern - found ingroves of alders, hickories and bitternuts in the Midwood - there is usually Ivory Moss in the area as well
Softwood fern - sprout near the pinesin the Rimwood - brown color

Fruits and Berries

Foxberries - resembling bright yellow grapes - grow on snakey vines typically near beech trees - they are greasy to the touch and smell like cooked steak - eaten by carnivores in times of scarce game - humans can eat them but they taste like dirt - Midwood
Blueberries favorite of bears (along with gooseberries) - east starwood north of halfaxe trail area with hundreds of acres of (now infected/poisonous) blueberry bushes
Gooiseberries favorite of bears (along with Blueberries)


Catmint - grows near birches http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/c/catmin36.html
Witch Hazel groves in the eastern rimwood http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/w/withaz27.html


Hinnies- Look like giant buttercups 10 feet in diameter with bright blue petals - normally the hinnies petals are closed tight giving it the appearance of a huge ball - the closed petals protect a pool of sweet nectar 2 or 3 inches deep - any attempt to pry the petals apart or pierce them with a sword causes the hinnie to evaporate, crumbling to dust instantly - the petals open by themselves for one day in the first week of spring - it is also possible to open the petals by warming them carefully such as by holding a torch near the petals or building a small fire near the base of the plant - but if the hinnie gets too hot it ignites and disintegrates - if you manage to get in you can sit in the pool and allow the nectar to be absorbed into your body - the results are 'usually' beneficial but not always (EEp12)

Shrubs and Bushes

Chuichu trees resemble miniature hickories about 3 feet tall found mainly in the forests near Battledale, they produe coneshaped yellow berries that dissolve in water to make a delicious cinnamon-flavored beverage

The Glim-Gardens Out along Gardner's Ride is a splendid walk among the most magnificent collections of floral and vegetable gardens ever seen this far north. Despite the dappled and uneven sunlight that filters through the trees, even the most delicate flowers grow strong and full due to minor magics that enhance the light's effects on them; the magic and the mythal subdue the extremes of weather enough that most plants can survive the short seasons here. Among the greater arrangements within the Gardens are the arcing trellises loaded down with the Coronal's beloved green and gray Cormanthyran roses, the trails lined by blue-and-white Bard's Ivy (which sways and responds to music by cupping its leaves as if to listen more intently), and many more rare and wondrous plants brought here from all corners of Faerûn and beyond (such as the overly emotional violet moss that only reveals its lovely flowers when fawned over vocally and given water, or the flame lilies of the Calishar, which only bloom in winter and almost seem to emit heat and fire when they do so). The name of Glim-Gardens comes from the glimmering wisplights that meander about the flowerbeds at night, magically shaped to appear as tiny winged elves or pegataurs.
