Sunflowers on Texel island beach


This video is called Sunflower time-lapse.

Ecomare museum on Texel in the Netherlands reports about scores of sunflower plants on the Mokbaai beach on the island; one of them flowering.

Many ships transport sunflower seeds (used as fodder for cattle, for kitchens, sunflower oil, etc.). Probably a ship lost some of the seeds. Sunflower seeds can float on sea water. As there is some fresh water on the Mokbaai beach, the seeds were able to form plants.
