Bloodgood Japanese Maple
Moderate to slow-growing deciduous tree to 12-15’ tall and wide. This highly-popular variety forms a rounded, lightly-tiered crown of attractive, palmate, purplish-red foliage that retains its color throughout the growing season, turning a vibrant scarlet color in the cool of fall. Adding further appeal to this variety is its attractive, smooth to lightly-furrowed blackish-red bark. Inconspicuous reddish-colored flowers appear in spring, followed by small, red-tinged, winged seed-pods that develop in late-summer. well-suited as a small tree for lawns, entryways, courtyards or Asian-themed gardens, and is especially beautiful as an understory to larger, green-leafed trees or conifers. Prefers regular watering in a well-drained soil, and thrives in a light sun to light shade exposure. Requires some protection from hot afternoon sun in warmer inland climates, and may experience leaf-scorch in areas prone to strong winds. Deer resistant.
