Mallow Flower- Originating in Africa, Asia, and Europe, mallow flowers are bright, and eye-catching. They range in colour from reddish-purple to mauve. In fact, the colour mauve was named after them. The plant which mallow flowers grow on is often found in hedgerows, meadows, or fields. They were first written about in the third century BC, in Greece.
Commonly used in salads, the flowers are also an excellent garnish for dishes. Mallow flowers can be made into a tea. The flower buds may also sometimes be pickled.
Mallow flowers have a mild flavour.
