Tyler is famous throughout Texas for its roses. One-fifth of all commercial rose bushes in the United States come from this area. The Texas Rose Festival in October celebrates the flower with a parade and show. All you can imagine about roses is at the Municipal Rose Garden and Rose Center. The garden has 38,000 rose bushes of 500 varieties. The museum features educational exhibits about the rose-growing industry.
