Althea is a genus of the plants of which the Marsh Mallow and Hollyhock are species; by florists often extended to the genus Hibiscus. Althea is also a character from Greek mythology (the mother of Meleager). It is also the name by which Richard Lovelace (1618-1658) poetically addressed a woman, supposed to have been Lucy Sacheverell. Finally it's a track (words by Robert Hunter, music by Jerry Garcia) on "Go To Heaven" album (1980, Arista, AL 9508) by The Grateful Dead. Take your pick.
