Marshmallow, or Althea officinalis, is an herbaceous plant with a long history of medicinal benefits. Its root contains mucilage, a type of gelatinous substance with anti-inflammatory properties that can ease respiratory issues and digestive complications.

The herb is easy to cultivate and requires minimal care. Simply plant althea officinalis in well-drained, consistently moist soil and place in direct morning light with dappled or indirect afternoon sunlight when growing in Florida.  Can grow in full sun in Northern climates.  

Marshmallow can be used to make infusions, extracts, and even tinctures, making it a versatile herb to incorporate into your herbal medicine cabinet.

    I love my plant! I was so excited to receive it but also really nervous because usps held it for 4 days in one location! I was afraid it would’ve been damaged or dying when I got it due to the lack of nutrients but it made it to me in great condition! Sara wrapped it so well that it still had moisture on it! Thank you so much for the cute note as well! I highly recommend this seller!!!

    All items arrived in perfect condition and healthy. Will definitely be purchasing from the seller again.


    The plant was very well packaged, and the soil was moist even after 2 weeks in the mail ! After a few weeks in my care, I can say that this Hoya transitioned very well.


    Lovely seller and such an amazing addition to my palm stones! Orca Agate is so beautiful.


    I received everything and my order consisted of wonderful plants. The service I received from the seller was great!


    Firstly the seller was so friendly. I very much appreciate them reaching out about my order. The stone is beautiful, great quality, and I even got a couple freebie stones. Will definitely order from this shop again. Thank you so much!


    What a gorgeous plant! It was packaged so well it arrived in excellent condition. I was pleasantly surprised how large the plant is.


    This plant was packaged like it was a precious jewel. Love the plant and can’t wait to see it grow.


    Fragrant and lovely. There was a package mishap but the seller swiftly resolved it. Would order again.


    These were so perfectly and carefully packaged to arrive whole and thriving. I'm leaving them in the pots to adjust to my climate and will transplant them in the spring. I've received plants from other sellers and none were ever packaged as well. Thank you!
