A dainty North American Primula, 5- 15 cm tall when flowering, with a rosette of basal leaves, usually powdery white on the underside. A cluster of pink or pale purple flowers, rarely white, with a yellow centre in May to June. Named after Lake Mistassini from Quebec, where it was first discovered.
This is a very hardy Primula that can be grown in the rock garden in moist crevices, around the pond edge, or in a partly shady spot directly sown on a tufa boulder; it looks wonderful when mass planted.
