It took a lot to get here

In the furthest northern reaches of the Eastern Continent, large mountains of snow and cold stand as they have done since time unknown. The land has become home to fauna that have became adjusted to the freezing weather... but as has some flora.
The Frostbloom is an extremely rare flower that can only be found at the tallest summits of the great northern mountains. They are aptly named, due to their unique frost-like appearance. Their stalks powerfully resemble cold frost itself whilst the anther looks like tiny icicles. The petals are deep purple with light purple edges.
This appearance stops creatures from eating the flower for consumption (such as mountain goats), as it would simply taste like eating frost and ice in miniature form. The petals still attract designated bugs to deliver the flower it's much needed pollen, though due to the location of the flower, few flowers manage to survive as only subspecies of bees and butterflies can survive the intense cold.
The flower itself cannot survive far from a freezing temperature, as the frost it grows around the outside of the stalks can only sustain itself in cold temperatures. Should the flower be removed from it's natural location of a mountain or a cold environment, the petals will wilt and fall whilst the stem itself melts and leaves the flower no chance of survival.
They could be used as decoration flowers if the person lives on the mountains of the north.
Frostbloom would especially be good decoration around an enchanting table, as Elementals of Earth are attracted to it.
The flower has no alchemical value known. Frost and ice simply melts into tiny, plain water drops.
Frostbloom was discovered by members of the Kingdom Sangria.
Members of The Adventitious attempted to bring the flower back to Halbed upon it's discovery, but the flower melted once the faithful of Jax reached the bottom of the mountains into the tundras. Disappointing as it was, they found it had more value since it could not be removed. Attempt after attempt was made to bring the flower back to Halbed until one day it was achieved and the flower was bought before King Cymic_ Seymour.... where it uncannily melted in the victors hands into water. The embarrassment of The Adventitious over the melted flower that day meant nobody had attempted to move the rare flowers away from their mountains since.
Recently, Lemarc discovered the flower when climbing a rather peculiar mountain near the coast..
