'''Sweet Galenas''' was one of many names for the plant known to the [[Hobbits]] as [[Pipe-weed]], the source of the Leaf they smoked in their pipes. Though the art of pipe-smoking belonged to the Hobbits and the [[Bree-landers|Bree-folk]], the plant itself came originally from [[Gondor]] in the warmer South. It was brought there from [[Númenor]] and from them acquired its common Gondorian name, '''[[Westmansweed]]'''. The more noble name was '''''galenas''''' (a [[Gondor Sindarin]] form of of the proper [[Sindarin]] form ''galanes''), meaning "pipeweed" (or "sweet smelling growth"{{fact}}).<ref>{{PE|17}}, p. 100</ref>
