BiographyEdit

Vana by losse elda-d7uzbn4

Vana, the Ever Young, by Losse-elda

Vána was the younger sister of Yavanna and wife of Oromë. "All flowers spring as she passes and open if she glances upon them; and all birds sing at her coming."[2] She dwelt in gardens filled with golden flowers and often came to the forests of Oromë.

Melian the Maia was her friend and once served in her gardens in Valinor.[2]

In The History of Middle-earth, Tolkien wrote that even when the spells of Yavanna Kementari failed to heal the wounds of the Two Trees, Vána's love for the Golden tree Laurelin was so great that it caused the tree's remaining power to blossom in the form of a fruit of gold from which the Valar fashioned the Sun.
