|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, a Hobbit lass, was named after it, so it probably grew in the Shire as well.
The name is used for the sweetbriar. It derives from French referring to the "dog rose", ultimately from Latin aculeus "spine".
