» Life History
This plant is found in pockets of shallow soil on an outcrop of sandstone on a northwest-facing slope approximately 3,000 feet above sea level. The population is growing in a forest with a few pines. It appears to grow best in full sunlight, but can tolerate some shade.
Peters Mountain mallow can produce fifteen to twenty blooms during the flowering season of June through August. Fruiting takes place from July through October. This species reproduces by seeds and asexually. The flowers are apparently pollinated primarily by sweat bees and germination is enhanced by fire.
