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".

Starting now and all along autumn, trees at the Arboretum will be covered in fruit of all shapes and colours. Rosa moyesii, on the courtyard along the wall, has beautiful orange-red bottle-shaped rosehips. On the Magnolia Meadow you will find many Magnolia fruits in strange shapes, with sometimes bright red-orange seeds visible, attached by little thin white threads to the fruit. In the Marnef Wood, the spindle trees are covered with fruit. In plot 127 you will find Euonymus macropterus ‘Mount Fuji’. In plot 115, a group of Euonymus planipes and Euonymus alatus is a real pleasure to the eye. Oaks also have a lot of fruit this year, which is less fun for the gardeners since many acorns also means many seedlings. The seedlings do not seem to have suffered from the drought.

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