Rising Sun redbud tree is a unique specimen tree for the discerning gardener. After the lavender flowers fade in early spring, apricot to gold heart shaped foliage emerges. As new growth continues, the apricot/gold foliage fades to chartreuse.
A definite focal point! Easy grower, but make sure to water well in times of extreme heat and drought.
