Kosteletzkya virginica (Seashore Mallow) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: Sow these seeds about 1/8″ deep in warm, bright conditions indoors from late winter through spring or outdoors in summer. Soaking the seeds in water for 12 to 24 hours before sowing and/or providing extra warmth from a heat mat can help to speed germination.

The last time I started this species from seed, I sowed on March 1—under lights and on a heat mat—and the seeds germinated on March 4. Your experience may vary.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

As you can guess from its name, seashore mallow (Kosteletzkya virginica) is native to coastal areas along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Fortunately, it can also adapt well to garden conditions, preferring full sun and evenly moist soil. It produces grayish green leaves on open clumps of branching stems that typically reach 3 to 5 feet tall, with hibiscus-like pink flowers from early or midsummer to early fall. Each flower lasts only one day, but many new ones form through the whole bloom period. Perennial; Zones 6 to 9. The plants flower their first year from a spring sowing, so you can grow this species as an annual in cooler areas. It may self-sow.

Harvested in late September and early October 2022. At least 15 seeds. Unknown ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
