fire flowers

The fireflower tree is a rare site in Lemparthia nowadays- once seen all over the country, it's leaves were praised for their luminous quality, so much so it was harvested to near extinction. Now found only in the Midnight mountains, the tree's lives are deemed sacred by the Unarah people and to remove even a single leaf without permission evokes severe punishment. While the flowers are fire red, the leaves of the fireflower tree are luminous purple-gold and were once used to line Elvish cloaks, before the race vanished.
