Rise & Shine Redbud (Cercis canadensis 'JN15') is a new take on the traditional Redbud tree! Mid-sized and easy care, these are colorful additions to your yard! Lavender blossoms and color-changing foliage are a bonus that gives this tree 3 seasons of interest and beauty for your home!

The early spring burst of unique pea-like blossoms form right on the stems of your tree as a breath of fresh air after a long winter. Soon the heart-shaped leaves start as brilliant golden yellow, fading to bright green for the summer. By fall the leaves change again to their autumn wardrobe with the added decoration of seed pods that dangle and wave in the wind.

Rise & Shine goes a bit further with its devils-backbone branching and lovely winter branching. Very cold hardy and adaptable, Redbud trees are wonderful native understory trees that feed birds and attract pollinators!

Planting and Application:

Rise & Shine Redbud looks great as a front yard landscaping specimen with color that bumps up the curb appeal of your home! The graceful form and moderate size make these specimen easy to create shade over your garden beds, anchor foundation plantings or arch over a pathway, seating area or driveway!

Redbud trees are equally beautiful in the backyard where they look lovely shading your garden beds or with a chair beneath the welcoming shade and waving heart-shaped leaves. Watch early pollinators flit around the blooms or birds eating the seeds in autumn while the leaves change color throughout the year!
