Ancestor:Descendants:

The beach orbiflor split from its ancestor, the orbiflor. Like its ancestor it has a spherical structure to store water, guaranteeing its survival on the beach where there is a lot of salt water but not much fresh water. From this sphere grows many thin floral axles, with an extremity similar to a needle, which help keep the herbivores away. This sphere corresponds to the fruit such that, when mature, they are untied from the plant and are capable of rolling. During this course, it breaks away and frees innumerable small seeds that will germinate in adequate soil conditions. After some time, it develops a new sphere. The stalk has grown taller than its ancestors which keeps it from becoming completely buried in sand some of the time.
