(Althaea officinalis) African native. The original source of an Egyptian confection which evolved into today's marshmallows. The roots and velvety leaves have been eaten as a vegetable for centuries, often fried with onion and garlic. 3-4 foot stems of 1-2 inch, white-to-pink flowers are reminiscent of hollyhocks, to which this plant is related. The plant is also renowned in various folk cultures for its reputed medicinal properties.

What are the pros? Easy germination, solid growth

What are the cons? Pests of all kinds love it

Review:

What's good? These germinate very quickly, within 1-2 days. They handle transplanting well. While transplanting one, i even ripped half its roots off and it survived. They're supposedly deer-resistant. They supposedly flower in brutal hot months of august-september, when most things are done. What's bad? Pests, pests, pests. These have had leaf miners repeatedly, beetles, and mammals are eating tons of the foliage. Foliage is edible, not a huge surprise, but im not sure if theyll survive. The mammals show little interest til the plants are about 6-8 inches tall, but mammals eat a fair amount, so on a six-inch plant it's drastic. One caveat. I'm only 2 months into growing them. I'm assuming they're going to survive the being-eaten (theyre a weed, their leaf-stubs should be enough foliage) and flower properly. If they dont flower right, this will not have been worth

So excited to have this in our garden! It grew well and we look forward to Marshmallows this winter. No pests were observed and believe me we have them here.
