Are there any flowers at in Greenland? It’s a valid question, having in mind that Greenland, the largest island in the world, is mostly covered with ice (the ice sheet covers roughly 80% of the surface of Greenland). Well, I can assure you that in summer it does get green in Greenland and the green is oh so fresh and lush. There is abundance of many kids of grass, moss and lichens, dandelions, daisies, and there are five rare orchid species in Greenland. Also there are plants imported most probably by Norsemen, since they grow and bloom in places where there are Norse ruins.
