Product Description

This beautiful native orchid was collected from Recherche Bay, Tasmania in 1792. This collection of type specimens is attributed to the French naturalist J.J.H. Labillardiere, but there is reason to think that it was actually collected by Felix de Lahaye. Lahaye was the gardener aboard the d’Entrecasteaux Expedition, who created the French Garden at Recherche Bay, and went on to be Chief Gardener in charge of exotic and rare plants for Emperor Napoleon and Empress Josephine at their Paris estate Château de Malmaison. You can find this luscious orchid in buttongrass moorland, damp woodlands and peaty sand soils.
