Plant collections

The Arboretum Wespelaar holds a specialized collection of trees and shrubs from around the world, hardy in Belgium. It welcomes any woody species; giants and prostrate dwarfs, common and rare, beautiful and less glorious, and especially all those that are threatened in the wild and can find a home in the temperate Belgian climate.

Acer, Magnolia, Rhododendron and Stewartia are particularly well represented in the Arboretum. In addition to these, you will find a large collection of other genera such as Betula, Carpinus, Euonymus, Ilex, Tilia, Quercus, Styrax, Viburnum and many more. Please pay us a visit and ask for one of our guided tours.

Correctly labeling our collection plants is very important to us. You will find more information about our way of working in our GUIDE FOR LABELING COLLECTION PLANTS.
