Malva neglecta


Leaves, shoots and seeds are edible. While wild-harvested mallow is generally considered safe for eating and medicinal use, cultivated soil may make Malva neglecta's leaves inedible. Nitrogen-rich gardens or farms cause the plant to store a high level of nitrates in the leaves. Use caution if you grow your own mallow or collect it by a stream near fertilized farms. A tea can be made from the dried leaves.
