Cranbrook House and Gardens with Japanese Garden

Location Information

380 Lone Pine Rd
Bloomfield Hills, MI 48303

Japanese Gardens: There are many interesting trees and shrubs in this garden. The Japanese Maples are mature and spectacular. There are large areas of big leaf Petasities, purple Liriope and some Tree Peonies. Although Cranbrook House & Gardens Auxiliary does not tend this garden regularly, its secluded peacefulness and natural beauty still make it worth a visit.

From Detroit News
A one-acre Japanese-style garden at Cranbrook House & Gardens in Bloomfield Hills that is one of the oldest in North America is being brought to life with the help of a team of experts from across the globe.

Earlier this month, six gardeners from the Japan Federation of Landscape Contractors descended on Cranbrook to work on one portion of the garden, the Lily Pond Cascade, that was clogged and overgrown. 

The gardeners, whose work and travel was funded by a grant from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, moved boulders, rocks and plant material to bring the corner back to life. Water was turned back on to the site during a ceremony Tuesday.
