Attractive upright bushy plant with tap root and white, rose tinged flowers. First year flowering perennial. Medicinal herb used against coughs. Soothes irritations and inflammations of the skin, throat, eyes, lungs and urinary organs. Stimulates the immune system and helps prevent and repair ulcerations of the gastric mucosa and duodenum. The entire plant, particularly the root, abounds with a mild mucilage. Beautiful with hollyhocks in the garden. Also known as Marshmallow.

Indigenous to Africa, which is used as a medicinal plant and ornamental plant. A confection made from the root since ancient Egyptian time evolved into today's marshmallow treat. Most of the mallows have been used as food, and are mentioned by early classic writers with this connection. Mallow was an edible vegetable among the Romans; a dish of marsh mallow was one of their delicacies.

The common mallow is frequently called "marsh mallow" by country people, but the true marsh mallow is distinguished from all the other mallows growing in Great Britain by the numerous divisions of the outer calyx (six to nine cleft), by the hoary down which thickly clothes the stems and foliage, and by the numerous panicles of blush-colored flowers, paler than the common mallow.
