A tundra cotton plant

Tundra cotton as depicted in the Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim

Tundra Cotton is a plant which mostly grows in the plains of Whiterun Hold.

"Not all Nords are savages wrapped in animal skins, howling at the moon. There are a wide variety of fabrics worn throughout the land, thanks in no small part to the stubborn Tundra Cotton plant. It soaks up what rain it can in the plains west of Whiterun, and blooms frequently. While it does not exhibit any of the more striking alchemical properties, it is a staple in potions for not only fortifying magicka, but for resisting spells as well. I wonder if that quality is what allows it to have adapted so well to this climate." —Agneta Falia in the Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim.
