[edit] [purge] Template-info Template documentation

This template is for describing a tree, flower, grass, cactus, bush, crop, or other plant life that occurs in the Realms. If it is a fungus, mold, mildew, lichen, or other mushroom-like vegetation that doesn't fit the typical use of "plant", then use {{Fungus}}. If it has a challenge rating or gives experience when defeated, then please use {{Creature}} and consider adding the category Category:Plant creatures.
