Description

TOMBSTONE’S SHADY LADY In 1885, a small White Lady Banksia rose tree was planted behind a Tombstone boarding house. In 1936, that same rose tree had grown so large that it was named the “World’s Largest Rose Tree” in Robert Ripley’s ‘Believe It or Not’ column. In 1964, the Rose Tree Museum was opened to the public, And now, Burt and Dorothy Devere, owners of the World’s Largest Rose Tree and proprietors of Tombstone’s Rose Tree Museum, are happy to announce that Tombstone’s original Shady Lady has a new website. Featuring stories and photos of the World’s Largest Rose Tree and one of Tombstone’s oldest original families, the Robertson - Macia family, the website was written and designed by Ethel Robertson Macia’s great grand-daughter, Jeanne Kearney Noorman. The website also contains information about the Rose Tree Museum and Tombstone’s Annual Rose Festival along with video footage of the rose tree in bloom and a photo gallery.
