Tyler is the “Rose Capital” of the USA. Approximately one-fifth of all commercial rose bushes produced in the United States are grown in Smith County, while over one-half of the nation’s rose bushes are packaged and shipped from this area.

The “City of Roses” is home to the nation’s largest Municipal Rose Garden. From late April until frost, the Tyler Municipal Rose Garden blooms with nearly 40,000 rose bushes exhibiting approximately 500 varieties of roses. Over 100,000 people from around the world visit the Rose Garden annually.
