As the name implies, this wildflower is found in marshes, mostly near the sea. It is a soft hairy plant with velvety grey-green leaves, and bears masses of light pink flowers in late summer. The roots produce a white gummy substance when boiled which confectioners used to sweeten to make marshmallow sweets.
