A plant with bright pink flowers, sometimes called 'sea pink', and often found growing along coastlines, in marshes, or in other regions that are unwelcoming to less hardy plants. In Middle-earth, the only reference we have to it is amid the coastal ruins of Vinyamar, where Tuor found it growing alongside campion on the wide stony steps that led up to the abandoned halls of Turgon.
