The Rising Sun Redbud
Cersis canadensis  'JN2' PP24451

The Rising Sun is truly our favorite Redbud tree. This wonderful tree has spectacular color spring through fall. It's captivating bright purple flowers arrive in late winter running up and down all of the branches. It's new leaves are a beautiful vivid apricot, turning to an eye-catching bright golden-yellow. As the warmer season progresses the new growth emerges a striking tangerine with the mature foliage remaining yellow. In fall, the leaves turn to bright green with the new leaves remaining tangerine. What a show! Very few trees, other than some of the Japanese Maples, can compete with the fabulous show of color. We just can't say enough about The Rising Sun Redbud. We've had The Rising Sun Redbud in our test garden for several years and have not experienced any problems. Excellent heat and sun tolerance, drought tolerance, heavy periods of rainfall, you name it...this tree has survived and performed wonderfully through all of it. 

The Rising Sun Redbud grows well in almost any type of soil that is well-drained and full sun to part sun. It is hardy in USDA Zones 5a-9b. Find Your Zone >
