Peach - A pinkish-colored fruit, used for paw pads and cats with sunburn (cats CAN get sunburns)

Corpse Flower - Although it has a rancid odor, the petals and pollen of this plant can be used to ease pain, and aid with the healing of serious - minor wounds.
Cerberus Root - This rare plant has the ability to kill and heal. If you ingest the flowers, leaves or stem of the plant, or get them on your skin without washing them off immediately, it will kill you. But, the roots can easily heal a wound, or get rid of a minor cough.
Blossomflame often discovers new herbs in LilacClan's large fields and small pond, often near the DawnClan border (on their side of the territory, of course). She tests the herbs on mysterious, faded-looking cats that appear when she discovers an herb and dissapear when she is done testing.

Algae - The long green, red, or brown fronds of the large types of algae are useful when applied to wounds to stop bleeding. Can also be chewed up and applied to wounds or can help cool a cat if feverish.
