Mallow ‘Zebrina’ is an easy to grow perennial which provides large pink and violet striped flowers with pretty lobed foliage, both of which are edible. It is a lovely tall traditional cottage garden flower which may be grown in borders or containers. The flowers have a slightly nutty flavour and are beautiful when crystallised and used to decorate cakes and desserts. They may also be added to salads, to decorate cheeses, or to make floral teas. The leaves are commonly used as a thickening agent for those who prefer not to use gelatine.
