It is wonderful to come to a place in the month of January where wild plants are still flowering. In all our miles of walking the beach, this was the only blossom we have seen.
Anyone out there have any idea what plant this is?

It’s an evening primrose (Oenothera) of some sort. May I know where the photo was taken?
Coastal South Carolina.
Hi Gwynne, I see that you are affiliated with Cornell. I lived in Ithaca for a long time. Great place. Thanks for your information about the evening primrose. Jon
Yes, I am. It is, I am an international student and I like it very much. Based on the location, I think it’s very likely it’s the coastal evening primrose (Oenothera drummondii). http://plants.usda.gov/core/profile?symbol=OEDR
I forgot to mention! I live within walking distance of what used to be Willard Asylum, and started following your blog because of the amazing poignant photos you were taking.
