How can they survive in the Tundra ?
Most of the plants are small, grow close together and close to the ground. This protects them from the cold temperatures and the strong winds. Some flowering plants have fuzzy coverings on the stems, leaves and buds to provide protection from the wind. Some have woolly seed covers. Some plants have cup-shaped flowers that face up to the sun, so the sun's rays are directed towards the centre of the flower. These plants stay warmer than the air around them
