'''Aeglos''' was a tall, thorny plant, apparently related to modern gorse, but somewhat larger than that plant. Its sweet-smelling flowers were white, and from them it took its name: aeglos is [[Elvish]] for 'snow-thorn'. It was found on the slopes of [[Amon Rûdh]] in West [[Beleriand]] and surely elsewhere, but if it ever grew east of the [[Blue Mountains]], it is no longer found today.
