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.

Can You Keep a Bloodgood Japanese Maple Small?

While a Bloodgood Japanese maple tree does not need to be regularly pruned, you can trim and prune the Bloodgood maple tree to help it grow in your preferred shape. The best time to prune a Bloodgood Japanese maple tree is during the winter when the Bloodgood tree is dormant. Though it isn't always necessary, it's a good idea to trim off any diseased, dead, or dying branches.

How Big Do Bloodgood Japanese Maples Get?

A full-grown Bloodgood Japanese Maple can grow between 15 to 25 feet tall and spread to 20 feet wide at full maturity, making it a great choice for a small tree in your landscape.

How Fast Does Japanese Bloodgood Maple Grow?

The Bloodgood Japanese maple growth rate is slow to moderately growing 1-2 feet per year. You can add fertilizer and heavily water the Bloodgood Japanese maple tree to encourage it to grow faster. However, faster growth may result in less desirable branching for the Bloodgood tree so it may be best to have patience and allow it to grow at its own rate. 

Bloodgood Japanese Maple Care

The Bloodgood Japanese maple tree 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

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.

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. A slow-release fertilizer at the top of the root ball will help the maple grow. 

Our Bloodgood Japanese Maple for sale is sure to turn heads! We also have this tree available in the dwarf form too.

Perfect tree for that special spot

My Bloodgood Maple arrived in great condition. And it actually was bigger than wbat I thought it would be. What a surprise! Hole was dug and mulched, roots soaked for 24 hours and, after placing the tree, good side to the was perfect!! Could not be a better choice of a tree! Perfect Plants Nursery nailed it!!

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.

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.
