The Queen of Sheba - Thelymitra speciosa - This flamboyant beauty is native to Western Australia. It grows in open, sandy clays in exposed plains within the Wheatbelt. It’s reliant upon Tulasnella fungi for germination. Orchids of this genus often mimic other nectar-providing plants in order to be pollinated, typically by bees.
