Rose Tree Inn Museum
Planted way back in 1885, this Lady Banksia, sent all the way from Scotland to Tombstone as a gift, is believed to be the world’s largest rose tree at 8,700 square feet—it is listed in Guinness World Records as such. The white blossoms are usually at their best in early April.
The small Rose Tree Inn Museum exhibits photos and furniture owned by the tree’s planter, who moved to the territory in 1880 (4th and Toughnut Sts., daily 9 a.m.–5 p.m., $3).
