About the product
A biennial plant with decorative, white, large, full flowers gathered in long inflorescences.
Plant height 200-250cm. Perfect for naturalistic plantings, on fences, walls, garden flu and cut flowers.
It blooms in VII-IX of the following year.
Succeeds in almost any soil and situation, though it prefers a rich moist soil in a sunny position. It also tolerates fairly dry soil conditions. Plants are hardy to about -25°c. Marsh mallow is often cultivated in the herb garden, as a culinary and medicinal herb as well as for ornament. Its roots were at one time the source of the sweet 'marsh mallow', but this sweet is now made without using the plant.
