If you like roses or flowers this is a must visit. This is the largest (28,000 rose bushes) Rose Garden in the USA. I found several varieties I just had to have for my personal garden. But be carefull when you visit. The Spring peak blooming which I would guess would be late April to early May in Texas would be a good time. Another would be mid October when their Rose festival is held. But one word of caution, don't go there after Labor Day in Sept or you will not find any roses blooming. Them cut off all blooms and buds around Labor Day to force a mass blooming for the Rose Festival in October. Roses re-bloom on average every six weeks after deadheading, so you do the math regarding Sept and October.

Even in the "fresh-out-of-the-oven" heat, you can see which roses fare the best. Most are okay, a few are bare twigs, and a few are just blooming like they love it. My younger daughters, as usual, were entertained for 5 minutes, and then enjoyed dousing themselves in the water fountains.

Roses made Tyler famous and this is ground zero for Tyler Roses. Even though we had passed the "peak" season, there were still plenty of beautiful gardens filled with beautiful blooms. This is a MUST SEE when visiting Tyler. Stroll the gardens, relax under the trees or on the lawn, enjoy the company of your significant other in a picture perfect serene enviroment!

With so many roses the senses are filled. In the heat of the summer the roses are in full bloom and beyond. You will learn many things about roses while enjoying the sights of the many different colors. Water features are spread throughout the gardens. Great walking paths with some benches. Thanks to the many people who tend the roses and keep it looking nice. All this and it is free for the garden. The museum has a fee.

A nice, quiet place to wander through the garden. Even though it was hot, we enjoyed the garden. The roses were still in bloom and the crepe myrtles were beautiful. They also had several ponds with water features and even some koi fish in them. It would be a nice place to spend some time if it were a little cooler. The garden is free, but it closes at 5 p.m.
