Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN again on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm (you can exit the Arboretum until 6pm through the parking), from April 1st to November 15th included. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".
On the Magnolia Meadow you'll find the ‘Blue Magnolia’, Magnolia acuminata 'Seiju' (plot 219) flowering as well as Fraxinus floribunda (plot 218) and Asimina triloba (plot 212). The latter has very peculiar flowers. They are brownish in colour and sometimes produce a strange smell which attracts flies for pollination. In autumn Asimina triloba bears edible fruits which taste like banana and have the texture of avocado. In the Marnef Wood and Verlat Wood the Rhododendrons add a lot of colour, for example Rhododendron 'Jeanne Artois' (a yellow flowering selection by Arboretum Wespelaar in plot 131) and a hybrid of Rhododendron dichroanthum (plot 163) with bicolour flowers. In the same plot you’ll also find Magnolia fraseri, with soft yellow flowers and beautiful arrow shaped leaves, auriculate at the base.
