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".
Summer has arrived in our courtyard: In the central plant borders you will find the deep-purple flowers of Salvia x sylvestris 'Mainacht’, the bright purple blue pea-like flowers of Galega x hartlandii 'Lady Wilson' and the dark blue Delphinium 'Atlantis' amongst many others. Against the walls, both the violet striped Triteleia 'Rudy' (a summer bulb) and the Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve’ are fighting to attract our attention. All perennials have a number tag. At the reception you can purchase the complete list of perennials sorted by name and by number for € 1.
When reaching the Magnolia meadow, you will undoubtedly be struck by the overwhelmingby scent of Tilia amurensis subsp. taquetii (plot 211). 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 Stewartia rostrata and Stewartia pseudocamellia stand out. But also Cornus kousa 'Milky Way' in plot 142 is once again stunningly white and richly adorned.
