Hirithel's Herbal History

Some ancient legends claimed that eating this plant would strengthen the blood of warriors. Other legends said that this was a very healthy plant for females of childbearing age to add to their diet. However herbalists of today have not been able to substantiate claims of any effects, pro or con, resulting from ingesting the blood spikes.

Author's Note: Have heard some far-fetched rumors that a secret society of Necromancers have discovered a dark use for this plant. Details are unknown at this time.
