yellow foxtail

Foxtail is an herb that can be found in the Two Rivers region. It can be prepared as a medicinal sleep aid that does not make the user groggy by boiling it with marisin .[1]


A foxtail is a spikelet or spikelet cluster of a grass, that serves to disperse its seeds as a unit. Thus, the foxtail is a type of diaspore or plant dispersal unit. Some grasses that produce a foxtail are themselves called "foxtail", also "spear grass". They can become a health hazard for long-haired dogs and other domestic animals, and a nuisance for people.[2]
