Best Gold Leaf Redbud on the Market

Why Rising Sun™ Eastern Redbud Trees?

Shining like a beacon of beauty in your landscape, The Rising Sun™ Eastern Redbud sets the spring season alight with gorgeous fuchsia blooms, vivid green-gold foliage, and full, vigorous growth that's second to none. Also known as the Judas Tree, this Redbud transforms your yard as nothing else can.

You've never seen a Redbud like this before. Its symmetrical silhouette and dimensional stacked foliage stand up to heat, drought, and cold...and through it all, the Rising Sun attracts graceful wildlife like birds and butterflies to your garden.

In fact, its foliage is as lovely as it blooms. In fact, from a short distance, the mix of golden and green leaves look like blooms themselves. The sturdy branches hoist tons of large, heart-shaped leaves that almost appear pinned onto the tree in layers. It's a vision of beauty you won't find anywhere else.

Aptly named, the Redbud's leaves start out a golden yellow, giving way to a peach hue. And before the sun ever rises on your tree, the Redbud's flowers will emerge with vibrant color throughout the branches. The show begins early in the spring as waves of pea-like, fuchsia blooms pour onto the tree. Once the foliage arrives, the color scheme lasts well into the fall when the leaves turn an incredible orange.

Perfect per usual

Like every tree I have ordered from this site, this one came in perfect condition. I was only available as a 3-4ft tree, but the one I was sent is more like 5/6ft tall. Gorgeous young yellow leaves that I am sure will fill out well this summer. Now I just need to get it planted. Will update as it grows.
