Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm (you can exit the Arboretum until 6pm through the parking), until November 13th, 2016, included. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".
The autumn light in the Arboretum is beautiful for the moment. Many fruits have also appeared: shiny red fruit on Crataegus macracantha (plot 261) to dark purple and almost black on Crataegus songarica (plot 264). The Cotoneasters in plot 174 are also full of colorful fruit: deep red fruit on Cotoneaster rehderi, burgundy purple on Cotoneaster moupinensis and shiny blue-black on Cotoneaster ambiguus. On the Magnolia Meadow, you will notice the often irregular shaped red aggregate fruit of Magnolia. The false fruits of Hovenia dulcis do not stand out as much, but are definitely worth a closer look: after flowering, the peduncle thickens together with the receptacle and forms a bizarre fleshy fruit.
