Clip | 26m 46s
North Carolina State University graduate, Jon Roethling discovered the ‘Hearts of Gold’ cultivar. It is a unique form of our eastern redbud that is distinguished by its intense golden-yellow spring foliage that gradually changes to chartreuse as the summer advances. The actively growing shoot tips take on an orange-red tone, making a distinct contrast to the older, chartreuse-colored leaves.
