Arctic Cotton Grass
Arctic Cotton Grass Eriophorum is a member of the
Sedge Family that forms a large part of the vegetation in
the Arctic tundra. It is able to flourish in areas that are
too cold for trees. This is a perennial plant with narrow
leaves and flowering heads with dense bristles that
persist as long white hairs in the fruiting stage. Cotton
grasses are found growing with mosses and lichens in
cold bogs and swampy ground.
