The Gottlieb Native Garden

a california love story

The Gottlieb Native Garden is a flourishing ecosystem belonging to Susan and Dan Gottlieb, friends of flora and fauna and devoted environmental philanthropists. With more than 100 hand-selected plant species and hundreds of animal species, the backyard is a National Wildlife Federation-certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat and a Xerces Society-designated Pollinator Habitat.

A Lovely Combination of Color

Beautiful moments can be found at anytime in your garden.  While walking the GNG in the early evening recently, we came across this Pyrausta moth alight on a Ceanothus flower.  Pyrausta moths are quite small, but this one stood-out because of its beautiful lavender pink color against the purple blossoms.
