Bloodgood Japanese Maple

Brilliant Scarlet Red you won't find with other Bloodgoods

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

Ships at the Proper Planting Time for Your Area
South ships on date above. North ships in spring.

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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Bloodgood Japanese Maple


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bloodgood Japanese Maple.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



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.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Bloodgood Japanese Maple again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Not happy with this type of tree... Poor dull color and dingy looking...


By: Anita Barrett
The tiny tree bloomed with beautiful red leaves in the spring but within 2 months the leaves had died. I see no other forms of new growth although I will leave the tree in the ground another season in hope of renewal.

By: FRANK McNERNEY
I COULD NOT BE MORE HAPPY. AND MY TREE IS GROWING WELL...

By: Nancy
I ordered the 4-6 ft tree about 3 months ago. It arrived healthy and had a beautiful shape.

By: neeraja sathya
I love the tree. It has survived well and looks great in my garden. I was a bit concerned as to how it would survive being "shipped" but it came really well protected in a special container.

By: Miriam
Absolutely beautiful tree. Needs little upkeep. Can be pruned if you want an airy look, or leave as is to get a gorgeous mound of red. Keeps its color long into the late summer. I put one in my front yard for a little privacy but not something that is overwhelming. It works perfectly for that reason.

By: Vera Hays
I have had my tree almost a yr now. I have watered, fertilized and babied this tree but it looks terrible! I love the tree, I want so bad for it to thrive but something has to be wrong. It was in good shape when it arrived but has not done well for some reason. I need some comments or help as to what to do with it. Thanks

By: frank tolley
Very Disappointing tree. Received with partially dried leaves, 3 weeks later all leaves brittle and no new growth. Now just a big twig in the ground.

By: Catherine Puzyn
I love this little tree. It is exactly as it was portayed to be.

By: maple lover
I loved my little maple tree! I didn't do anything special for it -just watered it once a week. It was growing wonderfully until an evil gopher got it, I will buy another and hope it will look and grow as nicely as the first one.
