Rising Sun Redbud

Fabulous nursery! I ordered a Rising Sun Redbud tree for planting in coastal Florida Zone 9. It came well packed and very healthy and bare-branched the first week in February. Now it's full of gorgeous leaves. It will be so beautiful outside my kitchen window. Thank you so much, Travis!
