The Deathbell is a tall plant with large inverted bluish-purple blooms found throughout the Drajkmyr Marsh of Hjaalmarch. They are commonly used to create poisons, but are widely known across their native province, Skyrim for several folktales regarding death. One such story is that they grow where an unfortunate death has taken place. Another story entails that it grows normally and attracts unsuspecting travelers and animals to their doom. While there has been no known proof of these myths actually happening, the Deathbell is seldom found but using its petals in mixtures can surely increase one's alchemic abilities.
In the early-First Era, the Dragon Priest of Forelhost, Rahgot had a large garden of Deathbell and ordered his head-alchemist to make poison for his entire cult to consume, before their stronghold was completely sacked. Worshippers of Peryite use deathbell among other things to create an incense that allows them to commute with their Daedra Lord.

Domica Redwort is a herb grown for their beautiful and showy flowers. They attain a height of about three feet and have feathery leaves; the flowers are usually bright red. In addition to their beauty, they are said to have magical abilities to enhance the appearance of anyone who carries or wears one of the flowers. Commonly grown in Valenwood, wild Redwort may also be found in Cyrodiil, where it grows primarily in the West Weald, with sparse occurrences in the Blackwood region and along the Panther River. Attempts were made in the Second Era to transplant it in the Summerset Isles.
The primitive Draggle Tail reeds are found in the swamps of the Bitter Coast region of Vvardenfell. The immature state of the plant's fruiting body are called ampoule pods, which bloom into the luminescent coda flower. Draggle Tails are prized by alchemists for their modest magical properties.
Dragon Scale MushroomEdit

Dragon's Tongue PlantEdit
The Dragon's Tongue is the common name for a fern-like herb that can be found across the provinces, but ideally they can be found in the Ultherus Swamp in Black Marsh and the Dragon's Teeth Mountains, in the vicinity of Fang Lair in Hammerfell. It is a wildflower, whose name comes from the fiery-red fronds that protect the golden bloom. But despite its exotic look, it contains a deadly poison that is strong on touch against many people, however, it is said that Argonians are able to harvest them and use their sap to enhance their endurance. Powdered Dragon's Tongue is used in desert travel to prevent chafing. The Dragon's Tongue can also be found in the province of Cyrodiil, sparsely in the West Weald and in pockets across the Lower Niben and the Panther River. It can also be found in Skyrim, specifically in Eastmarch.
Dragonthorn is a fairly small thorny bush with bright yellow flowers sprouting across long, tangled stems. It can be found growing across Tamriel, particularly in Black Marsh. The ancient Argonians believed that chewing dragonthorn leaves helps the body prepare healthy eggs. The Bright-Throat Tribe grew it for brewing potions to aid in fruitful bonding. Chewing dragonthorn leaves can lead to sour breath.
Drinkers were blood-drinking flowers created by Amantius Allectus circa 3E 433 by hybridizing vampires and plants. Allectus believed the plants would prove a great benefit to the people of Cyrodiil, and grew them in his Imperial City basement by feeding them the blood of small animals. The fronds of the juvenile plants would wave as if in a breeze, despite the stillness of their environment. The Drinkers ultimately began to wither unless provided with human blood. Allectus recognised the danger of these plants and destroyed his notes on the hybridization method, although the Thieves Guild stole his research diary.
