3 Seasons of Brilliant Foliage Changes

The most brilliantly colored selection of the eastern redbud yet, with spring foliage of deep apricot-orange, maturing to yellow and then speckled lime-green in summer, only to return to its rich golden tones for autumn. Coupled with abundant rosy-orchid blooms and vigorous yet compact growth, The Rising Sun™ Redbud is an absolute essential for the sunny garden.

Before the tree leafs out in spring, abundant pea-like flowers of lavender-rose open all along the trunk and branches, remaining for several weeks. The foliage follows, heart-shaped and very richly colored. As the deep apricot of new growth matures through shades of orange, gold, and yellow, all colors are present at once on the tree—a truly magnificent sight.

When the hot weather of summer arrives, the foliage of The Rising Sun™ Redbud turns a handsome shade of lime-green. Very resistant to heat and burn, it looks good even in the dog days of August before burnishing rich golden-orange again for fall.

A selection of our native eastern redbud, The Rising Sun™ Redbud is naturally resistant to pests and disease, growing rapidly in a wide range of soil types and moisture levels. It tops out at a very compact 8 to 12 feet high and about 8 feet wide, the ideal size for showcasing its beauty as a specimen or the focal point of an accent planting. Tolerant of light shade, it is very adaptable and easy to grow.

Stunning foliage on this one!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Be sure and plant this one so that you can see it from inside. It is a focal point outside my kitchen window. I am buying more to scatter around my property. I am THIS pleased, and I just planted it 3 weeks ago.

Pretty Tree

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I purchased this tree last year as part of a grandma/grand daughter gardening venture. The tree not only grew about a foot, but the leaves could be seen from my neighbors decks, including the peach color on the new leaves. We all enjoyed taking care of it and watching it grow. I can see the spring flowers getting ready to pop any day now. Wonderful tree!!!
