RISING SUN REDBUD
Cercis canadensis ' Rising Sun'
Westbrook Wall Garden
Highly adaptable to many soil types but thrives in well-drained deep soils in full sun to light shade. Very heat tolerant.
‘Rising Sun’ Redbud has tiny pink flowers in early spring followed by bright orange-peach heart-shaped leaves.
Canker is most destructive followed by the fungal disease verticillium wilt.
Its compact size allows it to be either used as a single specimen or in groupings.
Introduced by Ray Jackson of Jackson Nursery, our Rising Sun Redbud was planted in 2014 along the outer edge of the wall designed by architect Frederick Law Olmsted.
