Cottongrass in Greenland
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Cottongrass is in fact not a grass at all, but a sedge. Common in the Arctic and many Northern regions, this sedge of the genus Eriophorum grows in acidic wetlands or peat bogs. |
The photo of this particular inflorescence was taken in a wetland area near Aajuitsup Tasia, a large lake approximately 12km Northeast of Kangerlussuaq, Greenland.
