- The Word Of Desires, The Canticle of Bhoa dru Durá

It grows in and around the shrines of Lynir and there is isn't many surviving shrines to the Fa Geinn God of Rebrith.

The flower is hard to find as the springs that it grows around are hard to find and most of them are in The Waves the ever-shifting mountains with moving trails.
