One of the 120 exhibits on Liverpool's GoSuperlambananas Trail in July/August 2008 was Starry Sunflower - a Superlambanana decorated in the style of Van Gogh - which was installed in Olive Mount Gardens, just off Mill Lane. This proved extremely popular, among both visitors and local residents, and it secured a very large sum for the Lord Mayor's Charity Appeal Fund when auctioned off in September.

Following pressure from their tenants, Cosmopolitan Housing Association decided to commission a replacement - this time decorated in the style of Monet's 'Water Lilies' - from the same artist, Alan Murray. On 11th November 2008 the finished product was unveiled by Phil Redmond, in his capacity as Creative Director of the Liverpool Culture Company.
