Celandine were yellow flowers that grew in Beleriand. The elf-lord Glorfindel of Gondolin was said to be arrayed with celandine "as a field in spring". Whenever celandine bloom during the spring, people would hold sad festivals in memory of Glorfindel.[1] It is presumed that the yellow flowers which grew on his mound were also celandine.
