Breedlove Nursery in Tyler, Texas

While traveling from Dallas, I stopped in Tyler, Texas.  For a purpose.  I drove just a little way off Interstate 20 to visit Breedlove Nursery.  I was looking for a Rose.

Breedlove Nursery is more than rows of plants offered for sale.  
It is also like a lovely garden.  

The patio I would like to have at my home!

But, this is the reason I stopped by. 

 I needed a new Grahm Thomas Rose.  Mine died two years ago and I still had not found a replacement.  I bought two.  Grahm Thomas, I have missed you!!

Ahh, this was a little beauty!

Drift, from the family of easy care Knock Outs.

Brought this little rose home too!


  1. That is a beautiful rose. I planted my first roses last year, 4 knockouts. After enjoying your garden blog, I added Belinda's Dream, and 4 David Austins; Jude the Obscure, Heritage, Glamis Castle, and Tamora. They are just babies, but still bloom quite a bit and what fragrance! Pure joy! (with thorns)

  2. Looks wonderful there and love your picks to bring home with you. I could have stayed there for hours. Love the patio pavers...what a dreamy place.

  3. What a great tip!
    When I visit my daughter in Dallas, I must go there.

    I am looking for a Virgen de Guadalupe Rose.

    Have a good week,

    PS- I love detours!
