The plant is a member of the Mallow family, which prefers to live in wet places like marshes, hence the name. It grows widely around the world, and is found in the western U.S.A. The modern confection has none of the plant in it, but in times past, the boiled roots were used to make marshmallows. Served as a vegetable, the plant was considered a delicacy among the Romans. In France, the young tops and leaves are eaten uncooked in salads. Its high mucilage content makes it an appropriate supplement for the respiratory system where it soothes irritated mucous membranes.
