Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN again on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm, until Wednesday, November 13th. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".

On the inner courtyard, it is almost impossible to miss the impressive flowers of Cynara cardunculus. In the middle of the Magnolia Meadow, Koelreuteria paniculata is flowering with beautiful yellow flower panicles. After flowering, big papery lantern-shaped capsules appear, which will stay on the tree late into winter. Because of its medium size, it is an interesting tree for a smaller garden. Hydrangeas are bringing a touch of color to the otherwise all-green arboretum. You will find them in the beginning of the Werner Wood and in the Marnef Wood. The inflorescence of Hydrangea consists of large sterile flowers which attract insects to smaller fertile flowers.

This leaflet will guide you around in the Arboretum (also available at the reception).
