Jump to: navigation, search

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.[1] The local name of the tree is not mentioned, and it is unknown if there is a connection with ebony of the Summer Isles, the ironwoods of Westeros, or the nightwoods of Essos.
