All Bloodgoods are NOT the same... this one could add thousands of dollars to the value of your home. Most Japanese Maples are grown from seed. This is a quick, cheap way to produce a tree with poor color and form.
Your tree is one in a million... Really! Chosen for it's bright color and appearance. We graft a cutting from a near perfect Mother tree on to a hardy root stock. So your tree is genetically identical to its parent and will have the same color and traits. These cuttings are scarce.
Your tree is grown up to 4 years longer than other Bloodgoods. We take a root stock, similar in size to what our competitors sell. Then we cut it back... graft on to it... continually prune it... and grow it for several more years. Your tree is bumped into larger containers until it develops a massive root system that will propel it's growth when planted in your yard.
Your Japanese Maple is a focal point of your landscape. So instead of blending in... your tree stands out with amazing color. Landscape Designers love to use red because it compliments an otherwise dull green yard. And you won't find a redder Bloodgood than this one. It's foliage stays scarlet for most of the year... rather than just a few weeks. Summer burgundy foliage turns bright red as the weather cools.
A small tree that you can plant near your home, patio or tight places. Trim to your desired height or let it grow to its full 15 feet. The roots are well behaved, so many people plant Japanese Maples near their foundation to accent corners and angles of their home. They also work great for small yards, entry ways, accents or as property dividers.
Bloodgoods are versatile and will grow in partial shade or full sun. So you don't have to worry about tall shade trees nearby or shade from close structures.
Similar Bloodgood Japanese Maples sell for as much as $200, if you can find them. We are able to offer yours at an extremely low price as a result of our large volume. They will sell out, so order while supplies are available.

Specific Directions for Bloodgood Japanese Maple
Plant your Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Japanese Maples can tolerate full sun, but prefer partial shade. Make sure that your Japanese Maple doesn't sit in a low area that collects standing water. Plant your Japanese Maples about five feet apart for a privacy screen.
Japanese Maple Trees will adapt to your natural soil, even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Water your Japanese Maple when your soil feels slightly damp to the touch. To avoid sun scorch give your Tree water during the early morning or late afternoon.
Your Japanese Maple Tree won't need to be fertilized unless you know that your lawn lacks nutrients. To fertilize your tree give it a slow release well balanced fertilizer every Spring. In the Spring red leaves will emerge on your Japanese Maple and turn a dark purple color as the Summer progresses before turning a vibrant bright red color in the Fall.

|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Bloodgood Japanese Maple gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
