Súriquessë is the Elvish name of a grass.[note 1]
The name likely means "wind feather". It has been suggested that the name is Quenya, and would derive from súre and quesse.
- ↑ The name appears on unpublished drawings related to an illustration (fig. 196) by Tolkien depicting the grass; Hammond and Scull describes the physical appearance of the grass as a "tuft of radiating grass".
