The plant that got everyone’s attention is actually Crotalaria cunninghamii, although the Latin name might be quite a challenge to pronounce and memorize, that’s why people also refer to it as green birdflower or regal birdflower. It is a species native to inland northern Australia. This plant grows well in sandy areas, that’s why it’s mostly found in sand dunes, along beaches, and in Mulga communities. The Birdflower was used by Aboriginal people to treat eye infections.
