Tundra

Tundras are among Earth's coldest, harshest biomes. Tundra ecosystems are treeless regions found in the Arctic and on the tops of mountains, where the climate is cold and windy and rainfall is scant. Tundra lands are snow-covered for much of the year, until summer brings a burst of wildflowers.

This is an example of a tundra. As you can see the land is very bare. Due to the extremely cold climate and the lack of precipitation, plant growth is very limited.
