The Rising Sun Redbud - 3 Gallon Pot
An unrivaled flower and foliage color factory spring through fall, the Rising Sun is hands down our favorite Redbud variety. The incredible color show starts in spring when clusters of bright purple, pea-like flowers cover the branches. Just as the flowers begin to fade you'll notice the emergence of vivid apricot new leaves that quickly turn to an eye-catching bright golden-yellow, then to chartreuse and finally to a medium green. The orange new leaves continue to come throughout the spring and early summer, making this one of if not the fastest growers among redbud tree varieties. Get all the details below!

Special Attributes

An unrivaled flower and foliage color factory spring through fall, the Rising Sun is hands down our favorite Redbud variety. The incredible color show starts in spring when clusters of bright purple, pea-like flowers cover the branches. Just as the flowers begin to fade you'll notice the emergence of vivid apricot new leaves that quickly turn to an eye-catching bright golden-yellow, then to chartreuse and finally to a medium green. The orange new leaves continue to come throughout the spring and early summer, making this one of if not the fastest growers among redbud tree varieties. By mid-summer the leaves turn to light and medium green and then finally to a vivid bright yellow in fall. 

We've had The Rising Sun Redbud growing in our own gardens since 2013 and it has demonstrated excellent heat and sun tolerance, drought tolerance, heavy periods of rainfall, you name it...this tree has thrived through everything our north-central Georgia climate has thrown at it.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 15 feet tall and wide, or maybe more, the Rising Sun Redbud is ideal for use as a focal point specimen or in groupings in sunny or shady landscape or woodland borders. Also nice to frame the corners of tall homes and to provide beauty and some shade around patios, porches and other outdoor living spaces. A fine addition to yellow or orange theme gardens and sunny or partially shaded woodlands

Suggested Spacing:   20 feet or more for space between trees




Cultural Preferences
 
The Rising Sun Redbud tree is very easy to grow in most any average, moist but well-drained soil and full sun or shade. We haven't grown this one in a lot of shade so not sure if shade has an effect on the foliage color. The tree in our gardens receives about 6 hours of direct sunlight from late morning to late afternoon and puts on a spectacular color show. Standing water or constantly soggy or wet soils are problematic.
