  • Common Name: Mallow
  • Latin Name: Malva spp.
  • Family Name: Malvaceae

All tortoises enjoy a snack on mallow flowers and leaves and you can find it growing almost all year round.  Closely related to Lavatera, which is sometimes called 'Tree Mallow'.  Often seen growing in gardens. 

The young leaves of Mallow can sometimes be confused with Lady's Mantle, which is a different plant altogether.
