Tundra Vegetation (by crysis99)

Tundra comes from a Finnish word meaning treeless plain. Although some dwarf varieties of trees can be found in the Alpine region, most tundra plants grow to a height of around one foot.

Small shrubs and perennial herbs often grow in a cushion or mound form over the ground. This holds the buds away from the cold soil while keeping a low, sturdy profile so the icy winds can blow over the top without damaging the plant

Tundra vegetation is tough. It has adapted to the extremely harsh conditions of the tundra. Plants have to be strong to survive the acute cold, drought, bitter winds and extremely short growing season of the tundra.
