Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ACER palmatum 'Bloodgood'
Bloodgood Japanese Maple, Japanese Maple
The beautiful and ubiquitous Japanese maple is a small, deciduous tree native to eastern Asia. Its cultivar 'Bloodgood' features deeply lobed, palmate (hand-shaped) leaves which emerge purple-red in spring, deepen to burgundy-red in summer, and turn fiery tones in fall. In winter, the stark gray branches will add to any garden or landscape.
One of the hardiest cultivars of Japanese maple (to zone 5), 'Bloodgood' prefers sites with rich, well-drained soil and part sun to part shade. It is versatile in the landscape and may be grown as a feature plant, in a mixed border, or in a container.
