Beach Sunflower

If you explore the world at the edge of the beach, look down as well as up. This is a beach, or dune, sunflower.

The beach sunflower blooms repeatedly all year long. It is very resistant to drought conditions, and also is very tolerant of salt spray. Butterflies and bees regularly visit the beautiful bright yellow flower with the brown center.
