A Wayside Exclusive Mail-Order Introduction!

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, and we are honored to be the exclusive mail-order purveyor of this exciting new introduction! Zones 5-9.
