Zebra Mallow 'Zebrina' (Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina')Herb in 1L Pot

Zebra Mallow 'Zebrina' is a tall plant resembling a hollyhock, they are distant cousins, and the plant is also known as a French Hollyhock or a tall Mallow. Zebra Mallow has velvety grey leaves that are triangular and folded and large bi-coloured white to pink flowers have a slight veining of darker purple hence the zebra part of the name and give way to furry fruits.  Excellent in containers, or the sunny border, the flowers are very attractive to butterflies.  Growing 1-1.2m tall, this hardy perennial will need cutting back after flowering to maintain a neat shape.

Herb Usage

The roots used to be boiled to a jelly to make the confectionery named after it, and in France dried marsh-mallow roots are still sold as a soother for teething babies to chew on. Infusions of leaves and flowers make a soothing gargle for sore throats. All species in the genus Malva have edible leaves and can be eaten in a salad. Mallow flowers are a sweet and decorative garnish for deserts.Include them in jellies, or crystallize and arrange on mousses or puddings or an iced cake.
