Primula mistassinica in flower in Ontario

As the AGS Sichuan trip was cancelled, I ended up in Canada instead. Not quite a primula hotspot (!) but it was nice to see these, if only to think of a Primula really doing its stuff. Singing Sands/Dorcas Bay, Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. (First week of June, boggy meadow/calcareous mire) Shore of Lake Huron

Ontario primulas

Thats great Giles. Years ago, Professor Spencer Barrett of Toronto sent me slides of these populations. They are certainly sensational, even better than the P. farinosa I saw at Sunbiggin last weekend!
