I've always called it the blue lotus flower.

It most closely resembles solanum... Nightshade. Related to peppers but poisonous

I think it is the flower of a mandrake.

At least it looks like, and it fits in the theme.

It's called the Stemless Gentian (Gentiana acaulis)

It is native to central and southern Europe, from Spain east to the Balkans, growing especially in mountainous regions, such as the Alps, Cevennes and Pyrenees, at heights of 800–3,000 m

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentianacaulis


My bad. The gentian had 5 pettles, not 4 like on the card.

I got an official answer for this, as it annoyed me that I couldn't find the names of two of the eight ingredients in the rule book... unfortunately, the official name for it is just "flower", and they say it "was never intended to be a special sort of flower".

(The other ingredient that isn't named in the rule book is mandrake root)

That's a pity! I'll just find a fantasy name then. Adding 'flowers' to your alchemical potion doesn't sound very exciting!

Full text of the email that I received from CGE, in case anyone's interested:

Quote:
Hi Chris,

You are right, the remaining ingrediends are indeed "mandrake root" and "flower" (yea, just so vague, I think it was never intended to be a special sort of flower :o) ).

Kind regards,

Dita,
CGE

"Nightshade" is a pretty good name, I think.
