Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis)
The Latin name says it all–this plant is a healer extraordinaire. And, this healing comes in a fairly humble package, although actually the plant does flower rather gloriously. Marshmallow prefers full sun to part shade, rich, moist garden soil and poor drainage (ie clay) is not a problem. The herb may be dried for tea or the root sliced and dried for direct consumption. The effects are immune enhancing and healing to the gastrointestinal system, largely used for treating colds, influenza, fevers, urinary infections and ulcers. See “Making Plant Medicine.”
