Azalea & Spring Flower Trail

We invite you to enjoy the vivid colors and sweet scents that only an East Texas Spring can provide. Make plans to take in the special Azalea and Spring Flower Trail events.

This year’s Azalea and Spring Flower Trail will be held March 22 – April 7, 2019.

We have additional Spring events and year-round attractions to assure your visit to Tyler, Texas is a pleasant one!

The Azalea & Spring Flower Trail travels through ten miles of residential gardens and historic homes sites. The two trails have been routed to maintain an orderly traffic flow so visitors can see as many flowers as possible. From the courthouse on North Broadway, follow the specifically marked Azalea Trail signs southward to enjoy this outstanding celebration of Spring in East Texas.

The Azalea Belles

The official greeters of the Azalea Trail are known as the Azalea Belles, young women from the Tyler area who dress in antebellum gowns. The belles are chosen each year from area high schools or home school families. Join us for the ribbon cutting on March 22 at 10am at the Pyron home, 212 W. Dobbs, to get your first glimpse of this year’s Azalea Belles.

If you are a Freshman or Sophomore in high school and are interested in volunteering as an Azalea Belle, please fill out an application:

Progress of the Blooms 2019 - There are a few azaleas beginning to show, although, most are still just budding. With the beautiful weather that is planned for this weekend, we expect many more to start popping out. There are other spring flowers to see as well. (Updated 3-15-19)
