Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm (you can exit the Arboretum until 6pm through the parking) until Sunday November 16th. Groups are also welcome on other days on request. For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".
Those who still like to see Magnolias in bloom can seek out Magnolias in summer bloom. A number of Magnolias flower for the second time this year; though less spectacular because less abundant and often hidden between the leaves. The compound fruits of several Magnolias are getting clear, often impressive proportions now.
It is still time to explore the different Hydrangea species in the Marnef Wood. You also can find flowering Clethra alnifolia in plot 146 and a Cornus mas 'Aurea' heavily laden with red colouring fruits. In the Vijverbos Oxydendrum arboreum (plot 183) is flowering as well as Cephalanthus occidentalis (plot 177). The latter is called Buttonbush because its flowers are arranged in a dense spherical inflorescence. The white stamens protrude out of the inflorescence as needles on a pincushion.
