Musk Mallow

Musk Mallow Flower and Seeds, Malva moschata, Pittsburgh, 2015

Musk mallow grows wild and thrives best in the shaded parts of my yard.  This year I collected the seeds pods and was pleasantly surprised by their unique shape.  The leaves, flowers and seeds of the plant are all edible, but the plant is most prized (as are all mallows) for their medicinal uses.
