The American Club® Gardens
The American Club Entrance Beds and Exit Beds
These ever-changing flowerbeds welcome guests of The American Club. The beds are a colorful, fresh display of seasonally appropriate flowers and foliage.
This garden greets guests and sets the tone for the gardens of The American Club, offering a display of colors and textures including unusual conifers and annuals.
The Wisconsin Room Garden
This garden is an extension of The Wisconsin Room dining experience. The garden’s focal point, a grand cedar arbor, supports a variety of decorative vines and casts its shadow upon the bluestone terrace, surrounding shrubs and perennials.
This shade garden, enclosed by an arborvitae hedge and an umbrella of Littleleaf linden trees, offers a private dining experience. The window boxes filled with annuals brighten the garden.
Beautiful handcrafted copper lanterns hanging on hand-hewn cedar poles light the bluestone walk in this courtyard. Highlighted by a specimen Scotch pine, this garden’s trees provide privacy for surrounding guest rooms of The American Club. In addition, a wide variety of perennials offer colorful seasonal change.
Prairie Woodland Courtyard
A bubbling stream meanders through this courtyard garden featuring plants native to the Midwest. A lush display of native Wisconsin trees, shrubs and wildflowers welcomes guests to investigate and experience the splendor of our region’s flora in its most picturesque state.
The central feature of this courtyard is the gazebo that replicates early 20th century architecture. The formal annual beds and café seating make this a popular space for intimate conversation; however, this garden easily transforms into a grand event space for hundreds.
Take a swing under the shady arbor and enjoy the sights and sounds of the “Scarf Dancer” fountain, defined by a colorful backdrop of perennials and annuals. This courtyard offers outdoor seating to guests of The Greenhouse, a charming antique solarium from Chorley, Lancashire, in the north of England. The Greenhouse was meticulously dismantled, transported halfway ’round the world and reassembled piece by piece to stand in its current home at The American Club.
