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.
