For the Herald/Review Arizona
Spring is the most romantic time to visit Tombstone. Each April, Tombstone’s oldest living resident, the 125-year-old Tombstone Rose Tree, bursts into bloom, perfuming Tombstone with the enchanting scent of violets.

The Tombstone Rose Tree is the world’s largest rose bush. In April, it is covered with clusters of fragrant, dime-sized, fully double blooms. The gnarled trunk is more than 14-feet in girth and sturdy boughs are covered with shaggy cinnamon-brown bark.
