The Hearts of Gold Redbud is indeed decorated with golden, heart-shaped leaves that make a great impact in the garden. In early spring, on the bare branches, purple-pink flowers profusely cover all the stems and branches. The leaves are orange-red when they first emerge, after the flowers fade, and they quickly turn solid gold, later in summer becoming chartreuse green, and then yellow in fall. This large shrub or multi-stem tree grows 2 feet a year, so it won’t be long before it is 10 feet tall and wide, maturing to over 20 feet tall, and 30 feet wide. Use it as a lawn specimen, in large shrub beds, in the corners of your property, or on the sunny margin of woodlands.

  • Remarkable golden heart-shaped leaves
  • Dramatic purple-pink blooming in early spring
  • New leaves are orange-red before turning gold
  • Chartreuse green in summer, turning yellow in fall
  • Hardy in zone 4 and easy to grow

The Hearts of Gold Redbud colors best in sunny spots, but it can also take afternoon shade, which can be valuable in hotter zones. It grows well in any well-drained soil that is not too dry, including clays, and it is hardy in zone 4, throughout zone 5, and all the way to zone 9. It has no particular pests or diseases, deer don’t touch it, and this vigorous shrub is an outstanding redbud, which brings interest to your garden for months and months.
