Why do we plant sunflowers in our garden? Other that the fact that they are magnificent blooms in their own right, the Australian native parrots here on the Gold Coast, Queensland, love them. We get King Parrots, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and Corellas feasting on the flowers long before the seeds have a chance to dry. The Rainbow Lorikeets prefer grevilleas, bottle brushes and the powder puffs.
