Product Description

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.

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.

Great shipping

The way the tree was packed and handle on the root ball made sure it was handled properly. I have had trees from others which came broken in half and with limbs broken off due to poor packaging. The tree was also bigger and better than expected so very happy.

The Rising Sun Eastern Redbud Tree

I was concerned at first because when the tree was removed carefully from the bur loch sack to be planted, the soil did not remain around roots. I planted it with soil additive and root stimulator. At first, it was very droopy and I worried about it’s survival. We’ve had so much rain, and now it looks so much stronger, but is still fragile. This tree was planted in remembrance of my husband who passed a year ago.

Great Customer Service

I ordered the Rising Sun Eastern Redbud Tree. When it arrived, the very tip of the tree had snapped off during shipping. I contacted customer service and provided a few pics from my Iphone and within a few days, I had another tree in perfect condition. Thank you. I will order from you again.

Growing so fast!!

I was at first a little concerned about the tree.. it came in with little to no leaves. The ones that were there were a little discolored but it mostly look like a stick with some dirt at the bottom. I'm happy to say though a few days later after planting and watering that the tree is springing back to life! So much new growth with it and the leaves coming in already are gorgeous! Being in shipping for a week worried me but I am so happy to have gotten this tree. Nothing this beautiful looking was available at our local nurseries. Looking forward to buying other plants thru the site again now!
