|Other names||Sweet briar|
|Location||Ithilien, the Shire|
Eglantine is a type of wild rose. Frodo and Sam found it growing in Ithilien as they journeyed through that land. Eglantine Banks, Pippin Took's mother, was named after it, so it probably grew in the Shire as well.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name is used for the sweetbriar. It derives from French referring to the "dog rose", ultimately from Latin aculeus "spine".
