Zilker Neighborhood Gardens

Commentary by a National Wildlife Steward who helps Zilker neighbors establish native plant gardens

The benefit of native gardens

I had a visit from this Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly on Sunday afternoon. Enjoy! In the background, you can see a native Piquin pepper bush (small red peppers that hit the 70,000 pepper heat rating, according to Penzeys Spices.)

What wildlife have you seen lately?
