Made another foray to Rock Pond and Wildflower Hill early Monday evening. These are Marsh Mallows (Althaea officinalis) growing around the rim of the pond. And, yes, they are related to the marshmallows that you roast over a campfire. To quote Wikipedia: “A confection made from the root since ancient Egyptian time evolved into today’s marshmallow treat.” The second photo is a detail of the first.
