Tyler, Texas, is the county seat of Smith County in East Texas. It is named for President John Tyler in recognition of his support for Texas' admission to the United States. Tyler is referred to as the Rose Capital of America because of its large role in the rose-growing industry; about 20% of commercial rose bushes produced in the U.S. are grown in Tyler and Smith County and more than half of the rose bushes are packaged and shipped from the area. In 1985, the international Adopt-a-Highway movement originated in Tyler.
