"In the fields of Lebennin, near the delta of the River Anduin, there grew the flowers that Grey-elves named Mallos, the "gold-snow". Their blooms were fair and never fading, and in Elven songs they were linked to golden bells calling the Elves to the Western Sea."

EtymologyEdit

Mallos is a Sindarin name meaning "golden flower", apparently consisting of elements related to malt ("gold") + loth/loss ("flower"/"snow"). The Westron name of the flower is given as Goldenbell.
