Tyler Azalea and Spring Trail opens for 54th year

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The 54th-annual Tyler Azalea and Spring Flower Trail opened to the public Friday morning.

Award-winning gardener Neil Sperry cut the ribbon at the home of Joan and Guy Pyron, opening the ten miles of trails.

Thirty of this year's 32 Azalea Belles were on hand to welcome the crowd.

They will be at many of the residential gardens and historic home sites along the tour over the next four weeks.

"People are going to find beautiful dogwoods, of course the azaleas, lots of tulips. I mean, you just drive down the street right now and there are some gorgeous tulips that are wide open," said Kim Morris with the Tyler Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Lots of different flowers. It is a kaleidoscope of color."

Last year, the city brought in more than $2 million during the three weeks of the azalea trails.

This year, the trails will be open four weeks, until April 7.
