A very unusual and rare variety of ornamental, 'Coral Sun' is a deciduous tree that produces dazzling red shoots in spring with red-toned, fern-like leaves that transform through orange to light green while still keeping their red stems.
In summer, Coral Sun produces golden-yellow panicles of flowers, giving rise to its other common name of the golden rain tree, before turning vibrant yellow and orange with red, lantern-shaped fruits in autumn.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Also known as the Pride of India, Coral Sun is fully hardy, tolerant of drought and pollution and it's easy to grow, thriving in all soils with the best colours developing when it is planted in a sunny, sheltered spot and given plenty of organic matter.
Supplied as a dormant bare root plant ready for immediate planting, Coral Sun will grow to 4m x 3m in 10 years, ultimately reaching 12m x 8m so does need room to spread.
