Marshmallow is an attractive perennial native to damp soils of Europe, Western Asia, and Northern Africa. Its grey-tinged, velvety leaves are edible as a potherb, and its mucilaginous roots are used both in healing and in confections. This is the plant whose early Egyptian confections later inspired the marshmallow treat.
