The Rising Sun™ is a vigorous grower with a full, rounded shape and stylishly holds its color into autumn. A third season of interest is provided in early spring by sweet pea-type flowers, rosy-orchid in color. The flowers appear before the foliage in spring and are attractive to bees and butterflies. New foliage is a bright rosy-apricot. Even the bark is a smooth tan with a yellowish cast, distinctive from other Redbuds.
With a mature height of only 12 feet, The Rising Sun™ is perfect for smaller gardens and in-town neighborhoods as well as for specimen and accent plantings. “When I first saw this Redbud I went wild,” enthused grower Ray Jackson. “Fellow nurserymen have said it is the most outstanding golden Redbud they have ever seen, and I can attest it is vigorous in growth and very heat tolerant.”
