Tyler Municipal Rose Garden Reviews
A rosey Day trip Jul 04, 2008
The Rose garden in Tyler is the largest rose garden in the country. There are over 38,000 rose bushes/trees here. I love going here because it is a free day of walking around. Early spring and fall are the best times to view all the flowers in bloom. You can even buy famous Tyler rose bushes to take home with you. The best place, and the cheapest, is up on I-20 where these guys sell them for $2.50 for a plant. They are really nice and a pretty good size plant for the money.
This is also the place where they have the annual Rose festival in October. This is a big event that sees thousands of people arriving from all over. If you are a rose buff, you will recognize David Austin Rose bushes. There are close to 300 of these which make you think you are in England. This is also the home of one of the 24 nation rose testing centers in the USA.
Many of my friends have had weddings and special parties here. The summer brings blooms of perennial colors and scents.
The Queens Tea during the October Rose Festival is something eveyone has to see and experience.
