Commonly when referring to Mallow people are referring to the species Marsh Mallow which grows in damp meadows, marshes and by the sea.
Mallow is used as a food source, a fiber similar to hemp and medicinally. Mallow root was once made into the confection we enjoy now and call Marshmallow. Ironically, today the confection that shares the name no longer contains the herb.
