Althaea officinalis (Marsh Mallow)

Herb, Shredded from Poland (SKU 0950)

Excellent quality, shredded Marsh Mallow leaves from Poland.

Marsh Mallow belongs to the Malvaceae (Hibiscus family). The large and important family of Mallows are most abundant in the tropical region, where they form a large proportion of the vegetation; towards the poles they gradually decrease in number.

Indigenous to Africa and a member of the large mallow family, Althaea officinalis is commonly known as Marsh Mallow, though it bears no relationship to the popular confection. Its flowers are in bloom during August and September, and are followed, as in other species of this order, by the flat, round fruit. A perennial shrub with leaves and stems covered in soft down, Althaea officinalis produces pale-pink flowers in late summer, which are followed by flat, round fruit.
