Japanese Maple - Bloodgood
Exceptionally Colorful Ornamental Tree
The Bloodgood Japanese Maple is an exceptionally colorful ornamental tree. Plant it as an accent near the corners or entrance door of your home, or by any feature you’d like to bring attention to. It can even be grown as a Bonsai.
No color stands out as dramatically in your yard as the color red…and the Bloodgood Maple is red most of the year. Can you imagine a tree that never turns green? The palmate leaves are multi-lobed and pointed. They start out as a gorgeous bronze-red in the spring and summer, turning an extremely brilliant orange-red in the fall.
Bloodgoods tolerate partial shade or full sun, so you don’t have to worry about other plantings being too close. The Bloodgood also does well near foundations or sidewalks, where the root systems of other trees might cause you problems.
The Bloodgood Maple is one of the most popular Maples in the United States. It has won many awards. A deciduous tree, it will grow to 20 feet tall with an equal spread. Branches will grow to the ground, but it adapts well to pruning. With a Bloodgood Maple you take nature’s hand in deciding the shape and size that’s right for your yard.
An adaptable ornamental tree with remarkable color, the Bloodgood Maple is the perfect choice for your landscape.
