This article is about the plant. For the elf of Doriath, see . Nimloth (elf)
Nimloth the Fair was the name of the White Tree of Númenor. It grew in the King's Court in the royal palace in the capital city of Armenelos.
During the reign of
Ar-Gimilzôr, the tree was neglected and fell into decline but when his successor Tar-Palantir came to the throne it was again tended. Later, sometime after SA 3262 when Sauron had the ear of the powerful king Ar-Pharazôn and after Isildur stole one of its fruits, the White Tree was felled and used as kindling in the Temple.
A seedling of Nimloth was saved by
Isildur and replanted in Middle-earth. This tree and its descendants would come to be called the White Tree of Gondor.
consists of the Nimloth Sindarin terms nim ("white") and loth ("blossom").
