Black-barked trees are found near the House of the Undying, the seat of the warlocks of Qarth. Shade of the evening is made from the trees' inky blue leaves. The local name of the tree is not mentioned, and it is unknown if there is a connection with ebony of the Summer Isles or ironwoods of Westeros.
