The Rainbow Lorikeet is quite common where I live and they frequent our garden because of the many native flowering shrubs we have planted. This one was sighted in a street tree near our home. The tree is a “Golden Penda” – Xanthostemon Chrysanthus.
The golden penda was the theme plant for EXPO.88 which was held in Brisbane.

The tree’s natural habitat is the coastal forests of North East Queensland where it grows to 15 metres in height. The tree flowers from late winter in north Queensland to autumn with flower heads up to 15 cm in width. The penda is related to bottlebrushes and eucalypts. As well as being a garden specimen it can be grown as an indoor pot plant.
