#lotro plant-life

As Middle Earth is an ancient version of our own world, many of the plants are familiar to us,  the plants below are peculiar to Middle Earth.

  • lebethronroughly ‘finger tree
  • mallorn (pl. mellyrn) – from malt (gold) and orn (tree)
  • athelas – from athae (no direct translation) and lass (leaf), also known as Kingsfoil.
  • elanor – from él (star) and anor (sun)
  • mallos – from malt (gold) and loth/loss (flower/snow)
  • niphredil – translated explicitly as snowdrop  (just realised that this would make it not exclusive to middle earth… doh)
  • uilos – there is some ambiguity with this flower, uilos has a meaning of something like ‘ever-white’, however, it was also known as Simbelmynë, which means ‘evermind’ which is closer in meaning with alfirin (another term thought to be used for this flower).
