Product Description

Brilliant Scarlet Red Unique to this Bloodgood

Why Bloodgood Japanese Maples?

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 grass, flower beds and more.

But what sets our Japanese Maple apart from the rest? For starters, its foliage stays scarlet for more than just a few weeks like many other varieties. Though the color occasionally fades in high heat, you still get months of amazing visual interest. And it's a 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.

Why is Better

Best of all, Bloodgood Maples 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.

And because we’ve planted, grown and nurtured our Bloodgood Japanese Maples for months ahead of shipping, you get a better experience…an experience you won’t find at other nurseries or big box stores.

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!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Start by choosing a location with well-drained soil and full to partial sunlight (any area that receives 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). If you live in a hotter climate, give your tree some shade and protection from the harsh afternoon sun. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's slightly larger than the plant's root ball and just as deep. Place your Bloodgood, backfill the soil, and water the planting site and then mulch to preserve soil moisture.

2. Watering: The average amount of water supplied to the most common lawn and garden plants should be adequate for your new Japanese Maple (watering about once or twice weekly). During the hot summer months, water your Japanese maple in early morning or evening.

3. Fertilizing: 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.

4. 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.

Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree 6-7ft

Was very concerned since it arrived after fifth day, the young tree looked half dead due to the long delaying delivery. Fortunately it rebounded back very slowly even though lot of leaves were moldy and crumpled and fell off of the stressful tree. Still I love my “Bonsai” like Bloodgood Japanese Tree and hopefully it will grown into a magnificent and amazing tree.


We are so sorry for the extended commute your tree experienced but we're very glad to hear that it's recovering beautifully! Please reach out with any concerns!

Good Choice

The Bloodgood Japanese Maple arrived promptly and in good condition with excellent instructions for its care. In the past I have purchased flowers and trees in person, but finding exactly the kind of smallish tree for my shady spot proved daunting. My online experience with Fast Growing Trees was excellent. I also purchased the one year guarantee. After about a month, the Bloodgood Japanese Maple remains healthy. The size was larger than I expected, so I am hoping for good growth in the next growing season.It has been a good over-all experience with Fast Growing

Very Impressed

I was very impressed with the packaging of my tree, it was in a huge box but was totally protected. It was in excellent shape when I received it, and I planted it the day after I got it. I am sure it will survive the winter, and will be a beautiful tree in a few years.
