The scientific definition would be: a region in which the climate is dry for long periods of the summer, and freezes in the winter. grasslands are characterized by grasses and other erect herbs, usually without trees or shrubs.
Our definition for it would be a part of land that is covered by a whole bunch of grass with lots of bugs and animals in it.
There are a wide variety of plants in the grasslands.
Here are some more example of plants in the savanna.
Kangaroo paws- “ What really catches the eye is the plants green unscented flowers that can grow up to 10 centimeters long. The green furry flowers are attached to the sturdy red stem.”
Elephant grass- Elephant grass is a tall grass that originally came from Africa in 1913. It grows in dense clumps of up to 10 feet tall. In the savannas of Africa it grows along lake beds and rivers where the soil is rich.
The climate for grasslands is mainly dry. Rain fall usually does not go over 100 cm per year, and the least amount near 20 cm per year. Also, grasslands tend to be in temperate to tropical areas, often with cold winters and hot summers.
In the winter, grassland temperatures can be as low as -40° F, and in the summer it can be as high 70° F. There are two real seasons: a growing season and a inactive season. The growing season is when there is no frost and plants can grow. During the inactive (not growing) season nothing can grow because its too cold .
The blazing star is a native North American species and is often seen in people gardens. Identifying the species can be tricky. There are at least a dozen species of Liatris (scientific name for the blazing star species) in the southeast and some northern species enter parts of our range.
The only real way to identify the flower would be to count how many petals are on it or the shape of the pappus.
