Blue leaf tree
Novo spends some time in the library hoping to find something out about blue leaf trees, locations preferably, and the way they can be identified, knowing not all names are literal. He also tries to ask one of the less aggressive looking druidic lizardfolk in the gromfian religious cave.

Reginar's Compleat Guide to Flora describes blueleaf trees as having leaves of an eerie, gleaming blue hue, which are many-pointed and rather like those of maples in appearance. Blueleaf trees are very delicate and have many small branches. As a rule, these trees are very supple; they bend in high winds and undear heavy ice loads (rather than breaking), and grow in thick stands which sometimes reach 40' in height. The trunks of these trees rarely attain diameters in excess of 8". Blueleaf trees yield a vivid blue dye much favored by clothesmakers; the dye is derived from the sap and crushed leaves of the blueleaf trees. These trees are also favored for firewood cutting because they produce beautiful, leaping blue flames while burning. They are very rare in this region, more commonly found in the Silver Marches and High Forest.
