Musk Mallow

 Safe to Feed
  • Common Name: Musk Mallow
  • Latin Name: Malva Moschata
  • Family Name: Malvaceae

The flowers and leaves are perfectly edible, BUT when grown on nitrogen rich soils the plant tends to concentrate nitrates in the leaves, and therefore the leaves should be avoided if grown on this kind of soil.

There is also a white variety.
