Rhizome Growth

Rhizomes seem to follow me around.  While each of these plants appear to be separate units, they are stalks formed up from a single runner under the sand.  The plant shoots out tendrils and these sorts of rhizometric growths play a huge role in the control of dune erosion. This photo was taken on St Simons Island, near East Beach, in Georgia.
