More about the garden:


Arboretum Wojsławice is the part of the Botanical Garden of the University of Wrocław, located in south-western Poland, among the picturesque hills of the Sudeckie Foreland. It is one of the most beautiful gardens in Poland, and its origins date back to the 1820s. Over 3800 species and cultivars of daylilies are cultivated on the area of 62 hectares (approx. 153 acres). In 1995 the first specimen of this genus were planted in the garden. All plants are labelled with basic information, including the name and geographical distribution of the species, and in the case of cultivars – the name and the breeder. In addition to beautiful arrangements with other perennials and shrubs, there are also thematic flowerbeds presented – only with daylilies.

You can see on them the following groups of daylilies:

  1.  Species and botanical varieties
  2.  Miniature and with small flowers cultivars
  3.  Doubles cultivars
  4.  Fragrant cultivars
  5.  Historical cultivars – registered before 1980
  6.  Eyed cultivars
  7.  UF cultivars (Unusual Forms)
  8.  Landscape cultivars – long-flowering, with an attractive habit and decorative leaves
  9.  Stout Silver Medal Winners
  10.  Cultivars with ruffled edges and teeth
  11.  Bitone and bicolor cultivars
  12.  Polish breeding cultivars
  13.  American breeding cultivars (including series Chicago, Siloam, Broadway)
  14.  German breeding cultivars
  15.  Czech breeding  cultivars
  16.  Lithuanian breeding cultivars

For 15 years, during the full flowering of daylilies, usually in the second week of July, a meeting of daylilies enthusiasts under the name HEMEROmania has been organized in the Arboretum. During the events, individual groups of daylilies gathered in the garden are presented. The meeting is accompanied by exhibitions, lectures by specialists, a plant fair and other attractions.

Apart from daylilies, you can admire a rich collection of trees, shrubs and other perennials – over 12,000 species and cultivars – including the largest and oldest in Poland in the rank of National Collections: peonies (Paeonia), hydrangeas (Hydrangea), rhododendrons (Rhododendron), box trees (Buxus), witch hazels (Hamamelis) and periwinkles (Vinca).
