Blue Mountain Flower is an ingredient in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It can be used to make potions at an alchemy lab as part of alchemy.


Blue mountain flowers are produced by a brushy plant that can be found in many areas across Skyrim, including the following:

  • Very early in the game, a reasonable number line the road from Helgen to Riverwood.
  • Early in the game, a large number can be found along the road east of Whiterun, especially the stretch north of Battle-Born Farm.
  • Solitude and Morthal themselves contain a large number of plants for their respective sizes of town.
  • Under the huge arch of Solitude, starting from the small bridge above the East Empire Company Warehouse.
  • Large quantity can be found along the road between Lost Echo Cave and Dragon Bridge.
  • Between Riften and Helgen, these are found easily without leaving the road, starting from the ruins of Helgen.

  • Between Heartwood Mill and Riften, these are found easily without leaving the road.
  • Some can be found easily after defeating the spriggan at Autumnshade Clearing.
  • Some can be found at two small pools of water just south of Boulderfall Cave.
  • Commonly found in the Northern areas of Skyrim.
  • On Goldenglow Estate (a island northwest of Riften), there is a field with bountiful amounts of all the Mountain Flowers (except for the yellow variety, which are only available in Dawnguard zones).
  • In Riften, outside the Temple of Mara. Along the edges of the wall, inside the fence.
  • Several, along with other types of Mountain Flower, are found along the road which passes through Dragon Bridge, within the settlement itself.
