Myrtle

An evergreen flowering plant, commonly growing as a shrub but sometimes reaching the height of a low tree, myrtle has glossy dark green leaves and grows white flowers and blue-black berries. It was among the many herbs and plants found growing in Ithilien, a land with the warmer climate that the plant prefers. It was perhaps also found farther north: the daughter of Peony Baggins and Milo Burrows was given the name 'Myrtle', showing that the plant was known, and perhaps cultivated, in regions as far north as the Shire.
