    Last Chance to Admire Rhododendrons at Wojsławice Arboretum

    Visit Wojsławice Arboretum this weekend to see the last blooms of this year’s early-blooming rhododendrons.

    This year, rhododendrons bloomed earlier than usual. As the season nears its end, the upcoming long weekend is the perfect time to visit Wojsławice Arboretum. Home to Poland’s largest collection of these beautiful flowers, this botanical garden boasts a rich history and impressive biodiversity.

    The Wojsławice Arboretum’s roots trace back 200 years when the first park was established. Rhododendrons were introduced in the 19th century, and over the last 30 years, the garden has expanded to over 30 hectares, making it one of Europe’s largest plant collections.

    Rhododendron flowers come in various forms and colors, from white to deep purple. Although their peak blooming period has passed, the garden still offers a breathtaking display. According to Zygmunt Kącki, director of the Botanical Garden of the University of Wrocław, the garden is renowned for its century-old rhododendrons, particularly those of the Lusatian variety.

    Besides rhododendrons, visitors can enjoy peonies, daylilies in summer, and rare trees like the mammoth tree. The arboretum is also home to the European Tree of the Year, a majestic beech tree.
