Creature Types Plant
Erwin Vollmer  (1884–1973) Title: Die alte Buche, Date 1943

While most plants lack minds, much less culture, some such as treants have both. These plants often live very simply and concern themselves with the balance of nature around them even more obsessively than the fey do.

A few intelligent plants, especially the treants and myconids, mimic fey social structures and even have blood courts ruled by plant Faerie Lords. These plants associate with (or choose to avoid) the various fey courts much as any fey might, though they tend to be less selfish than most fey and more willing to shoulder the burdens of a court title.
