The snowflower was a plant that grew in cold climates.[1]


Like an arctic version of tumbleweed, snowflowers tumbled across the ice in the wind.[1] They had vibrant purple, pink, or yellow-green flowers.[2]


Snowflowers grew in crevices in ice and rock.[2]

The snowflower was edible by humanoids. It was also a favorite of ice worms, long furry creatures that dwelt in glaciers.[1]


The snowflower could be used as a component in perfume.[3]


The snowflower could be found on the Great Glacier[1] or on the High Ice.[2]
