'Bell'

Bjellra Flower

Red flower with black stripes, has 2 blossoms on each stem. Blossoms grow upwards, producing a gel-like substance in their centers. The weight of the gel eventually causes the flowers to fold over into their distinct bell shape, at which point the gel can no longer be harvested. The gel can be used topically to prevent or heal external infection while the petals may be eaten raw or otherwise for internal infections. 

Rarity: Rare

Biomes: Temperate, doesn't do well in extreme heat or cold, doesn't need much water

'Fire, Bonfire, Pyre'

Bal Flower

Also known as Fire Flower. A rare flower that blooms at high altitudes in the north, it is distinguished by it's deep red and blue coloration. A single petal may be steeped in hot water to create a tonic that makes one feel tipsy, while consuming pieces of the plant raw will induce vomiting. In moderation, this can be helpful to those who have ingested things they shouldn't have, but too much will lead to severe internal damage and even death. May also be used as a last resort to fight the most severe illnesses.

Rarity: Very Rare

Biomes: Northern biomes at high altitudes
