Compact and Heavy-blooming!

Heat-tolerant and burn-resistant, this is the most beautifully colored Eastern Redbud yet
Plant Patent 21,451. Cultivar name: 'JN2'

The most brilliantly colored selection of the Eastern Redbud yet, this brand-new introduction offers spring foliage of deep apricot-orange, maturing to yellow and then speckled lime-green in summer, only to return to its rich golden tones for autumn. Coupled with abundant rosy-orchid blooms and vigorous yet compact growth, The Rising Sun™ is an absolute essential for the sunny garden.

Before the tree leafs out in spring, abundant pea-like flowers of lavender-rose open all along the trunk and branches, remaining for several weeks. The foliage follows, heart-shaped and very richly colored. As the deep apricot of new growth matures through shades of orange, gold, and yellow, all colors are present at once on the tree -- a truly magnificent sight!

When the hot weather of summer arrives, the foliage of The Rising Sun™ turns a handsome shade of lime-green. Very resistant to heat and burn, it looks good even in the dog days of August before burnishing rich golden-orange again for fall.

A selection of our native Eastern Redbud, The Rising Sun™ is naturally resistant to pests and disease, growing rapidly in a wide range of soil types and moisture levels. It tops out at a very compact 8 to 12 feet high and about 8 feet wide, the ideal size for showcasing its beauty as a specimen or the focal point of an accent planting. Tolerant of light shade, it is very adaptable and easy to grow. The Rising Sun™ comes to us from Ray Jackson of Jackson Nursery in Tennessee. Zones 5-9.

Stunning foliage on this one!

Be sure and plant this one so that you can see it from inside. It is a focal point outside my kitchen window. I am buying more to scatter around my property. I am THIS pleased, and I just planted it 3 weeks ago.
Pretty Tree

I purchased this tree last year as part of a grandma/grand daughter gardening venture. The tree not only grew about a foot, but the leaves could be seen from my neighbors decks, including the peach color on the new leaves. We all enjoyed taking care of it and watching it grow. I can see the spring flowers getting ready to pop any day now. Wonderful tree!!!
