Lily (snow)
With bright yellow flowers, the snow lily (sometimes referred to as the dog-tooth violet), blossoms turn back upon themselves, resembling a shooting star. It blooms first in foothill areas, and then climbs up the mountains during springtime, reaching the higher elevations as the snow melts and the climate grows more temperate. If you make an appropriate offering to the gods in Icemule Trace, a small urchin may reward you with a bouquet of snow lilies.

Morning Glory
This annual vine produces a daily crop of freshly opened flowers during the summer months, in hues of blue, purple, pink, scarlet, and white or multicolored. The attractive single or double trumpet-shaped flowers make the morning glory one of the most widely grown vines. The flowers are normally open only from dawn to midmorning, but some of the newer varieties tend to hold their flowers open most of the day, especially in cloudy weather. The vine's abundant leaves are heart-shaped, sprouting off tendriled vines that will climb on just about any support. Profusely flowering against a background of pale green foliage, morning glories quickly form lovely hedges or screens, or can be used as a temporary ground cover. They also do well in hanging baskets and containers.

Mournblooms
Similar to the morning glory, though not as prone to trailing or climbing, mournblooms feature an almost blackish-purple trumpet-shaped flower with a white throat. The dark blue-green foliage features small spade-like leaves. The long, thin stems do allow for some training in cultivated gardens, with adequate support. When found growing in the wild or raised commercially, the blooms can be woven to wear as a coronet. It's said that any breeze through these blossoms creates a melancholy sound, like the sad song of a woman.
