Gallows-weed is a plant that was grown in the swamplands of Middle-earth where the evil phantoms Mewlips lurked and the birds called Gorcrows flew. In the lore of the Hobbits this tree-hanging weed is known by name but its properties are not spoken of; for few who entered those unhappy and haunted marshes ever returned.
