Marsh Mallow

Early colonists made marshmellows out of Marsh Mallow roots.

The Marsh Mallows can be found blooming here in Indiana anywhere there is marshy, wetland areas. They will bloom through a good part of August. Most are bright pink and stand over three feet high.

If you are out on the trail and get stung by an insect, a Marsh Mallow leaf may provide some relief from the sting.
