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 Arboretum has changed a lot now that the climax of the Magnolia flowering is over. Other plants, such as Wisteria (close to the Visitor’s centre) are now stealing the spotlight: long, white racemes on Wisteria floribunda 'Kimono', short purple racemes on Wisteria brachybotrys 'Okayama' and lilac racemes with a wonderful scent on Wisteria brachybotrys 'Murasaki Kapitan'. On the Magnolia Meadow, you will notice the fluffy flowers of Fraxinus floribunda (plot 218). Their gentle scent reminds us of summer and of a freshly mowed lawn. In the Marnef and Verlat Wood, Rhododendrons are flowering in all colours. In plot 262, you should definitely visit the flowering wedding cake tree Cornus controversa!
