Stabilizing beauty…


Beach Sunflower (Helianthus debilis), aka Cucumber-leafed Sunflower was found at the south end of the Galt Mile stretch of the Ft. Lauderdale beach, at the Oakland Park Blvd. entrance to the beach. This is a plant that endures a setting of frequent drought and salt. Stabilizing rapidly, this beautiful flower becomes a sizeable groundcover, helping control beach erosion.
