Stopped in on a whim. Not part of the Wild West but Roadside America nonetheless. The rose plant is huge (growing over 100 years and covers almost a city block. Nice staff and worth seeing but admittedly pricy 5 bucks to see it.

It is a big rose bush! If you're in Tombstone, it's worth entrance fee and a good 15 minutes of your time.

This an interesting stop if you're in Tombstone. The rose bush is located in the small backyard of a former boarding house/hotel which now houses a small museum with some of the original furnishings. We enjoyed the museum. Thirty minutes is enough time to see...More

Unbelievable! This is the largest rose bush in the world! We were lucky enough to see it in bloom. The roses are tiny and only bloom for about 4 to 6 weeks a year. Worth a quick stop, especially during blooming time.

As told to us on our visit. The young Mary missed her home so her parents sent her the rose tree as a comfort.
