The American Garden, in William Christie's words:
"My former gardener, Thierry Morosini, wanted to pay tribute to my American roots by using only species native to North America in this garden. Over 60 plant varieties ensure a garden that is constantly in bloom from spring until the first fall frosts. The American garden culminates at its lower end in a wooden Arts and Crafts-style shed roofed in old tiles, which I designed myself."
The american garden to the rythm of the season
The garden is a testament to the wide diversity of plants to native to North America. From the grasses and daisies of the prairies to the delicate flowers of Rosa californica. Peeking through gaps in the fence during the summer are the dusky pink bells of Clematis texensis.
