Description

This is one of our Favorites! This redbud tree has what others don't. Watch as its heart shaped leaves transform into a work of art. Each leaf has a tri-color to it. Enjoy yellow, orange, and apricot colors during the summer and fading into a lime green when it gets hot. Wait... we forgot about spring. As spring approaches, beautiful fushia pink blooms cover its branches that really brighten your day.

The Rising Sun Redbud needs to be planted in an area where it will receive full sun. It reaches heights of up to 8-12 feet tall and about 8 feet wide. It will need regular watering once it gets hot but other than that, its quite the tree.

Birds and Butterflies will also be attracted to this redbud tree.

This is the ideal tree for a specimen or focal point in your landscape.

How To Care

When planting your Rising Sun Redbud be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant almost any time of the year.

Redbuds are very easy to maintain. These trees tolerate full sun, part sun, and part shade and are adaptable to any soil as long as it isn't saturated. Water your new Redbud deeply about twice a week for the first couple months. After establishment, this redbud is drought tolerant. In extended drought periods this tree will benefit from a weekly deep watering. Add a layer of 2 of mulch around the base of the tree about the size of the tree canopy. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer. Redbuds don't generally require pruning, but if needed, prune immediately after blooming has ceased to remove any dead, dying, crowded or crossed branches. Pruning in winter is likely to cause bloom loss.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering and fertilization are the keys to your success. Avoid problems with Borer insects by ensuring your tree remains free from damage, especially from lawn equipment. Mulching helps to keep weeds at bay which eliminates the need to use lawn equipment near your tree. Borers look for a hole or weak spot to penetrate. Scale is an immobile insect that can affect almost any tree. You can treat this pest with horticultural oil. Be sure to coat the entire tree.

Landscape Ideas

Redbud Trees can be planted almost anywhere in your yard.  They are one of our favorites!  

If you have a natural area off to the side of your home, plant a redbud tree here.  Enjoy it sparkle with blooms in the spring.  Or plant 1 or 2 in your front or back yard.  They can be used as a focal point in the yard and they look even better with uplighting.  

Redbud Trees go very well with most other colors in the landscape.  Plant some kaleidoscope abelia under the tree for some beautiful yellow and gold colors.  Junipers also work very well.  The blues and greens pair well with the fuschia pink blooms!

There really isn't a bad place to plant your new Redbud Tree.  Just make sure that you can see it from your window because you will have your eye on it!

claire carroll purchase

I didn't see the coupon for free planting mix until after I had already checked out. Can I still get it? Other wise, the tree came quickly , was in good shape and so far so good.

Nice little trees!

I ordered 2 rising sun redbud trees. They arrived within a week as promised. The packaging was excellent so they both arrived undamaged. Both of the trees only had a couple leaves left on them, but they both also had nice strong, straight trunks. I planted them immediately and followed the directions provided carefully. Directions were clear and easy to follow. I also purchased the slow release fertilizer and added some as directed while planting. I was pleasantly surprised to see new leaf and flower buds all over both trees just 2 days after planting. The weather here is in the 80s and I am excited about the fact that they look as though they are about to bloom again so quickly after their long trip to California. I can't wait to see what they look like all filled out. It's been less than a week since they arrived, but I'm pleased so far with the overall experience and would definitely order from Planting Tree again.

Planting my "stick"

We carefully followed the directions and got planting mix from our local store and now we will wait and see. Since it is October, the tree has lost most of it's leaves and we have put it in a focal point of the patio., Cross your fingers. The photos on the web site are beautiful. Little nervous. Spring will tell.
