Brilliant Scarlet Red Unique to this Bloodgood 

A fresh, richly-hued focal point of any landscape, the Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree is known for standing out with amazing color. Landscape designers love to use its vibrant silhouette because it pops well against green grass, flower beds and more.

But what sets our Japanese Maple apart from the rest? For starters, its foliage stays scarlet for most of the year, rather than just a few weeks like many other varieties.

And it's small tree that you can plant near your home, patio or tight places. Trim the Bloodgood Japanese Maple to your desired height or let it grow to its full 15 feet. The roots are well-behaved; Japanese Maples are perfect for accenting corners or crevices near foundation walls. They also work great for small yards, entryways, accents or as property dividers.

Best of all, 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 much more and are exceedingly rare. We offer your new Bloodgood at an extremely low price as a result of our large volume. But the volume won't last - order yours today, while supplies last!

Anxious To Bloom
Planted only a few weeks ago my Bloodgood quickly lost it's leaves and replaced them with a tree full of blooms. We have had another burst of hot weather (95 degrees and 40 mile per hr wind gusts) so now the blooms have vanished and a new set of leaves have begun to return.

This is a very interesting tree to watch since it is so aware of the slightest weather change. I can't wait to see it in cold weather.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bloodgood Japanese Maple

Bloodgood Japanese Maple Planting Diretions

The Bloodgood Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood') is a beautifully decorative, cold hardy tree that has been known to add serious value to properties. These Japanese maples are commonly used as focal points or centerpieces for landscapes and appreciated for their non-invasive root structure. This moderately growing, full to partial sun lover is also fantastic for small to medium spaces as they only mature to about 15 feet tall and anywhere from 15-25 feet wide but can be easily controlled through pruning practices. The beautiful scarlet foliage of the Bloodgood is prized as it lasts most of the year instead just a few weeks.

Planting Directions:
1) The hole should be dug slightly larger than the root system of the plant, 2-3 times the width and just as deep as the root ball.
2) To help the roots establish themselves quickly, mix the soil with an organic compost (conifer bark mulch, rhododendron or azalea planting mix or rose compost) that is recommended but not necessarily needed.
3) The root collar of the plant, the ground line on the stem where the young plant was grown, should be level with the ground surface.
4) Back fill the hole and tamp down the soil as you proceed to cut back on any air pockets from forming.
5) Water the planting site and then mulch to preserve soil moisture.

Exception: If you have clay soil, dig your hole rather shallow, so that the root system is partly above the ground. When filling the hole, the soil should be mounded up to the root collar to protect the tree from drying out. (If deep holes are dug in heavy soils such as clay, the hole acts like a large iron kettle with no drainage, causing the water to build up, drowning and killing your tree.)

Mulching: Mulching around your Japanese maple helps to maintain a weed free area, minimizes water loss in dry conditions, and provides winter protection for the roots during cold frosts. The ideal mulch bed is a 2 inch layer of coarse bark.

Watering: The average amount of water supplied to most common lawn and garden plants should be adequate for your new Japanese maple tree. During the hot summer months, water your Japanese maple in early morning or evening. This will help protect against a condition known as “scorching” where the leaves appear to have been burnt by the sun, a condition thought to be brought on by watering in the midday sun.

Fertilization: Japanese maples do not require large amounts of nutrients. If your other lawn and garden plants do well, your maple should grow just fine. Any recommended fertilization should use a balanced complete fertilizer for shrubs and trees. This should be applied once a year in early spring, and if possible be applied just before the leaves appear.

Pruning: Your tree will need 2 to 3 years to become firmly established in your lawn or garden. After this period, you may begin to prune your tree if desired, although it is not required.

I have seen it before and I love its vibrant red color. I'm planning on using it as a focal point in one section of my garden.

When I opened the box the trees were in beautiful condition; with the exception of the peach tree leaves that have some dots.

How fast does it grow?
Jessica M on Jun 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In one year, mine has grown about 1 foot. In addition, it is much fuller this year than when I got it.

My tree only gets about 4-6 hours of sunlight per day in the summer. Overall, I am quite happy with it. I am in zone 5.

Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
