Niphredil was a small white flower that grew first at the moment of Lúthien's birth in Doriath. It was also found among the golden trees of Lothlórien, thickest on Cerin Amroth, where some pale green varieties could be seen.


The name means "little pallor" (niphred + -il) possible OS *nimphretil-

The name perhaps refers to its snow-like appearance.
