This is the largest rose tree in the world. Truly amazing, particularly when it is in bloom. The museum has some great historical items. The family came to Tombstone in 1879 in a covered wagon.

Our motel staff advised us to see this rose tree and it is amazing! It's huge!!! The biggest rose tree in the world and the oldest!

We timed this trip just right. It was peak time for the millions of tiny roses to be in bloom. The fragrance was fantastic. It's pretty jaw dropping to see a 130 year old rose bush span over 8,000 square feet. It's a must see!

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