When reaching the Magnolia meadow, the overwhelmingby scent of Tilia miqueliana (plot 215) will undoubtedly struck you. Further down the Magnolia Meadow, Magnolia grandiflora and Magnolia virginiana are flowering. Make sure to smell their wonderfully scented flowers. In the Marnef Wood the flowers of Hydrangea stand out. But also x Chitalpa tashkentensis in plot 282 (Wernerwood) is once again richly adorned. It is an intergeneric hybrid between Catalpa and Chilopsis. It has the trumpet-shaped flowers of Catalpa bignonioides and the narrow willow-like leaves of Chilopsis linearis.
