Sea oats. The seed head breaks off during the winter, either by wind, human or animal intervention, and the seeds which are down deep inside are give the opportunity to spread. Rodents will take the seed pods deep into the earth. Sea birds will break them open, spilling the small seeds about for the wind to blow around, the sand eventually covering them. They will then sprout and help to keep the sand dunes from moving around.
