Moonflower, also known as blueshine was a species of beautiful flowering plant cultivated in Evereska[2], Silverymoon, and grew wild in the Dessarin Valley.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Moonflowers were tiny white cup-shaped flowers that looked somewhat similar to tulips. Each flower was surrounded by four triangular green leaves that glowed blue in moonlight while the flower itself glowed white.[1]

Moonflowers found in Silverymoon could glow during any time of the day thanks to a simple cantrip invented by the city's wizards.[1]

In the Dessarin Valley, wild blueshines grew alongside snowdrift plant that was similar to clover.[1] Moonflowers of the High Dale were rare and grew atop deep snow, attracting Sembian alchemists on a month basis.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Erlevaun Dathnyar, a moon elf of Evereska had a small beautiful garden bathed in gentle moonflower glow. He died in his garden in 1348 DR, murdered by Zhentarim's Horaundoon and his clever spell.[2]
