Marsh Mallow is a cold-hardy perennial that prefers a moist environment as its natural habitat is open spaces near waterways. The original marshmallow was made using the root and sugar, far from the modern-day confection. All parts of this plant contain soothing mucilage, which has many medicinal uses.

Sowing and Growing

Sow seeds directly in the fall as stratification will aid germination, or start artificially stratified seed inside. Germination will take between 2 to 3 weeks. Marshmallow grows up to 3 to 4 feet tall and light pink flowers appear up and down the stalk in mid to late summer. This herb likes to be grown in full sun, but it can stand partial shade and thrives in cooler regions.


Marsh Mallow is known for its medicinal benefits which include soothing the gastrointestinal tract and the throat. It also has culinary uses. Leaves and flowers can be harvested anytime during the growing season. Dig roots in the spring or fall. All parts can be dried for winter use.
