The Rising Sun Redbud has an abundance of rosy pink flowers that bloom before the foliage emerges. The foliage emerges as a deep golden orange. As the leaves mature, they change to shades of orange, gold, and yellow before turning a speckled lime green. Heart shaped leaves change to yellow and orange in autumn. Redbuds respond to planting better when still young. Rising Sun is a nativar.
