Bloodgood Japanese Maple
Beautiful Autumn Red Leaves For Nine Months A Year? You Bet!
Can a tree make you & your neighbors say WOW? We bet that our Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree will!
Orange-red, Bronze-red, Purple-red. Anyway you label it this beauty is an exceptionally colorful ornamental tree.
It explodes with scarlet leaves in the spring that only get more brilliant through the year. When fall finally comes, the cold weather makes the leaves even more red, giving you the best fall color on your street!
The Bloodgood Japanese Maple growth rate is stellar. These 3 year old trees are shipped to you strong and healthy and once planted and well-watered they grow fast – 1-2 feet a year for the first few years. The tree will double in size in 5 years!
The typical Bloodgood Japanese Maple size is 20 feet tall and 15 feet wide, but pruning Japanese Maple Bloodgood is a cinch to do and the tree responds well to it. Prune it in autumn after the leaves have fallen and you can keep this easy-care tree to any size you like. It will even thrive in a big container, if you want to keep it small. (If you want to keep it really small, you can prune it as a Bloodgood Japanese Maple bonsai!)
The delicate leaves are showcased on strong branches that are striking in the winter landscape after the leaves have fallen. Don't let its delicate look fool you, though. This is a hardy plant. It grows fine in almost any soil – even hard clay – as long as it isn’t in standing water.
It really shows off in shade, so don't be afraid to plant it near the house or under taller trees. Unlike many shade plants, though, you can give Bloodgood Japanese Maple full sun as long as you give it plenty of water.
Prized by landscape designers, this is an adaptable ornamental tree with remarkable color. It will make your yard look like you spent way more money than you did! It’s time to up your curb appeal. Order this gorgeous tree from us today!
