Taniquelassë was a fragrant evergreen tree brought to Númenor from Eressëa by the Elves. After the downfall of Númenor they were not found within the circles of the world

...and they were remembered in many songs long after they had perished for ever, for few ever flowered east of the Land of Gift

Of those that ever did grow east of Númenor only the Malinornë is named.

Taniquelassë, among the other trees brought to Númenor, grew mostly up the sheltered seaward slopes of Nísimaldar in the Bay of Eldanna but they also spread far east into the land.
