Highlights

  • Striking Foliage: The Bloodgood Japanese Maple has beautiful, deeply-lobed foliage that emerges deep purple-red in the spring, turns burgundy in the summer, and then crimson in the fall. Its striking foliage provides a stunning visual appeal to any garden or landscape design.
  • Attractive Form: This Japanese maple has an upright, vase-like form with a well-defined branching pattern. Its unique form makes it a standout choice as a specimen plant or as part of a mixed border.
  • Low Maintenance: The Bloodgood Japanese Maple is a relatively low-maintenance tree that is easy to grow and care for. It prefers partial shade and well-drained soil and is generally pest and disease resistant.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. This means watering deeply once a week during the growing season and reducing watering in the winter.
  • Maintenance: Remove any dead or damaged branches as they appear.
  • Pruning: Prune any dead or damaged branches before winter sets in. Wait until early spring to prune the rest of the tree, as this will allow you to see the true shape of the tree once the leaves have fallen.
  • (Optional):Fertilize: Feed the tree with a balanced fertilizer in the spring, just as the leaves start to emerge. Repeat this feeding in early summer if necessary.

Planting Instructions

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
