Description for Marshmellow

Althaea officinalis is a perennial species indigenous to Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa, which is used as a medicinal plant and ornamental plant. The stems, which die down in the autumn, are erect. The leaves are simple (i.e., lobed or unlobed but not separated into leaflets).

The flowers are shaped like those of the common mallow, but are smaller and of a pale color, and are either axillary or in panicles, more often the latter.
