This is Steppe

Steppes are regions dominated by grasslands and shrublands that experience scorching hot summers, extremely cold winters, and receive very little precipitation. Steppes often have rocky, mineral rich soils and are found near major mountain ranges that block prevailing winds and the moisture they carry. As a result, the unique plants of the steppes are some of the toughest in the world.
