Thanot
A sturdy, bluish shrub that grows in rocky soil, it is hardy to even high altitudes and in southern dry climates. The thanot has long enjoyed its reputation to protect against enchantment. It is still a practice in remote areas to place sprigs of thanot over the main door of the house and also worn on the person to ward off false enchantment -- the evil eye. The shrub is small, seldom as much as forty feet tall, and usually misshapen. Thanots produce vivid red berries, but possess long, poisonous barbs that make gathering the fruit a hazard. Examine a red thanot berry and you will discover that unlike many other fruits that bear just a round hollow or dimple opposite their stalks, it carries a tiny, five-pointed star, or pentagram -- the ancient magical symbol of protection.

Viburnum
Potentially a quite large shrub or small tree, viburnum may reach three times the height of a giantkin, and be several feet wide at maturity. The leaves are smooth, bright green, and arranged on green stems in opposite fashion. A healthy plant gives the impression of being quite robust and dense. Very mature specimens that have not been pruned will look more open and tree-like. Tiny white flowers are held in great panicles in spring, and are pleasingly fragrant. Berries are drupes that turn from red to black and are attractive to birds.

Widowwood
Blue-black wood that can have a rose, purple, or crimson sheen to it depending on how it is cut and polished, the widowwood is a rare shrub. Possessing a sturdy trunk, its wood can be used for carving in small quantities. For example, one might build a door out of pieces of widowwood, or one might make small carvings, but one would never use it to build a house. The widowwood grows best in dim and dank swamps and that ilk. Silver-backed, deep green leaves cluster in sets of five along spindly branches. At the center of each leaf cluster, a tiny and lop-sided white flower will bloom, which in turn yields a pale blue berry. These tiny flowers and berries produce a beautiful scent, and this is where the widowwood gets its name. Men over the ages have died while seeking the scent to add to perfumes or to test for alchemical or healing properties, drowned in the quick bogs the shrub grows near, never to be seen again. The widowwood has only recently been rediscovered in some treacherous bogs past the Lake of Shadowed Sorrows, and small quantities have filtered into the more populous areas of Elanthia.
