UNIQUE, VIBRANT FALL COLOR FOR THIS JAPANESE MAPLE
This brilliant Acer palmatum Japanese Maple cultivar will truly stop anyone who passes by in their tracks. The acer palmatum Bloodgood tree should be grown as the focal point in your yard – a true statement piece!
After winter, the red green leaves emerge again in the spring and stay green through summer. As soon as the temperatures start dropping, the leaf color gradually turns a bright scarlet red or can take on many shades of red. Renowned for its beautiful garnet foliage and showy growth habitat, it is a staple in many home landscapes.
This ornamental tree is great for winter landscapes as the red is a nice contrast fall color to the evergreen trees. This fast-growing tree, similar to the Emperor Japanese Maple Tree, is easy to grow and very aesthetically pleasing.
BLOODGOOD JAPANESE MAPLE CARE
This is a deciduous tree, meaning it loses its maple leaves in winter. It is grown across the United States in USDA growing zones 5-8. It can reach up to 15 to 20 feet tall and 15 feet wide at maturity making it a great choice for a small tree in your landscape.
The tree prefers full sun to part shade and slightly acidic, well-drained soil conditions for best results. Watering is key to ensuring that your Bloodgood Japanese maple tree properly establishes its root system upon initial growth in the first year. Soil moisture should stay damp but no wet feet.
A slow-release fertilizer at the top of the root ball will help the maple grow. Read more about How to Plant a Maple Tree.
Bloodgood Japanese Maple Size
The Bloodgood Japanese maple growth rate is slow to moderately growing 1-2 feet per year. A full-grown Bloodgood Japanese Maple can get up to 20 feet tall and wide at maturity. The Japanese Bloodgood maple tree cannot be grown in the hot summer heat, so plant in partial shade if you have exceptionally hot summers to avoid leaf scorch.

Hi Judy! We greatly appreciate your continued support. Hope you and your new Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree are doing well. Take care!
Honestly, this is the best plant purchase I have made online!! It shipped so well to my house in Georgia and is growing nicely in its new home. I CAN NOT wait to see the leaves change this fall! Japanese maples are the most beautiful tree in my opinion and I love how small they stay.
Mary, so thankful for your kind words. We hope you enjoy your Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree for years to come. Happy planting!
Received two trees that we very well packaged. I ordered the extra fertilizer and glad I did, as my soil is not the best for planting. The leaves of the trees look just like the pictures. My husband and I are pleased with this purchase.
