Evergreen Grove

Evergreen Grove is a grove of trees concealing a small pond fed by a rocky stream, just southwest of Half-Moon Mill.

It can be found downstream from the mill in the western part of Falkreath Hold.


Evergreen Grove[edit]

There are several ancient Nordic features, including large partially submerged upright stones and a stone altar. The body of an alchemist lies on the altar, along with a copy of the alchemy skill book Mannimarco, King of Worms.

A couple of spriggans are found around the murky pond. There are several blue mountain flowers, thistles and a single nirnroot as well. Insects flock to this site including numerous blue and orange dartwings that skitter across the surface of the water. At night luna moths and torchbugs can be found. It can be hard to see them, but small fish such as Cyrodilic spadetail and Abacean longfins inhabit the shallow waters. With the Fishing creation, this pool is the only open world source of the rare fish Lyretail Anthias, and Spadefish can also be found here.

If you follow the stream that feeds the pond upstream towards the Half-Moon Mill, take care as the are several mudcrabs inhabiting the banks. You will find a muddy pool with three more nirnroots growing beside it. This is an unmarked location referred to as the Alchemist's Camp. It is complete with an old, extinguished campfire with a metal pot hanging over it containing an ingredient. Beside the fire are a wooden block with a copy of the alchemy skill book De Rerum Dirennis on top, and a small tent complete with bed roll. To the left of the tent are a crate and two food sacks, with an apothecary's satchel and the alchemist's journal on top. There is also another nirnroot shortly upstream from the camp. The journal refers to where the alchemist has camped as a "mushroom grove" and you'll find several patches of bleeding crown around the trees behind his tent.


  • Use of shouts and magic can send the body and book from the altar flying into the pond or along the shore, making them difficult to find.
  • It's possible to find body and book on shore on your first entry without using any magic or shouts.
  • Good place to harvest nirnroot because you can find five of them on location itself or in nearby vicinity. You can find one sample on alchemist's body too.
