Grog blossoms are the budding blossoms of a small, perennial bush that grows in warm, predominantly deciduous forests. It is particularly common in the south and east of Ithria and most notably in forests near the coastline. The bush has clusters of small, dark green spade shaped leaves and the grog blossom itself is a large reddish flower with a central fuzzy bulb which is purplish red.
The grog blossom is edible. In many Ithrian nations, ranging from Kalimura along the south coast, to Rukemia, it is served as a garnish floating on the top of a mug of ale. Grog blossoms are named because of this. They have a flavor which goes well with ale.
