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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
the tree arrived ok, just a little worn from trip and shipment. I planted the tree as prescribed bag and all. I noticed that on the third day the leaves to be droopy and probably from shock of transplant. will keep eye on its progress.
This replacement for the first redbud was 100percent better than the first. Thank you!
We love this tree. It came quickly. There was no damage to it. It is beginning to push new growth and looks very healthy. Highly recommend this company.
I'm so excited about this tree! It arrived quickly and was very healthy, with some small leaves. It's been in the ground for a few weeks and has already grown many more leaves and is on its way to being a show-stopper. I'd absolutely buy from here again.
Trees have been in the ground for about three weeks, still doing well. Check back in a year or so.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select a site that's 6 to 8 feet from existing structures and about 3 feet from fences. Clear a 5-foot radius of any competing plants, weeds, or grass.
Dig a planting hole for the redbud twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as the depth of the root ball. Rub the root system to loosen the outer roots. Fill the hole halfway with the removed soil and top it off with water. Fill it in the rest of the way and water again to settle the soil, using a total of about 15 gallons of water.
Spread 3 to 4 inches of mulch over the planting site but be sure it's about 4 inches away from the base of the trunk to prevent fungus and rot. Mulch conserves water in the soil, adds nutrients as it breaks down and aids in weed prevention.
2. Watering: During the first year, make sure to water your tree often enough to keep its soil moist yet not soaked. Water later in the evening after the heat of the day has subsided.
3. Fertilizing: In early spring, you can apply some compost and/or a complete fertilizer such as 5-10-5 in granular form. Spread evenly around the root zone of the plant according to the label instructions.
4. Pruning: Prune the tree in early summer after the tree is done blooming. Begin by removing any larger lower branches and branches that cross over each other or rub together. Cut off the branches close to the trunk without leaving any stubs.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase.
