About Marshmallow Root: Several six foot tall Marshmallow plants greet visitors at the South Entrance of Avena's Garden. It's tiny, mallow-like flowers attract ruby-throated hummingbirds and nibbling herbalists. We hand dig Marshmallows' demulcent roots in spring and autumn, and immediately tincture them in a solution of glycerin and organic alcohol.
