Plant Rhys Dwfen
"The Family of Rhys of the Deep"

A particular family of Welsh fairies who inhabit a hidden land where a plant of invisiblity grows. They are a particularly friendly lot, who would visit the market at Cardigan and spend huge amounts of money. Farmers who were nice to the plant would be invited back to visit the magical land.

Though I am unsure who Rhys would be, the word Dwfen is also what makes up the word Annwfn, the Otherworld, which is appropriate.
