Fluffy flowers

1 min read

The Arctic cottongrass is the most widespread flowering plant found in the northern hemisphere and Arctic tundra regions. Cotton grass is not actually a type of grass, but rather a plant that flourishes in areas that are too cold for trees.

Fun fact: in Scotland they used them to dress wounds during First World War.
