A timeless specimen ornamental, the Bloodgood Japanese maple is hardier and more adaptable than most Japanese maples. Its deep reddish-purple summer foliage is extremely striking. Red samaras appear in the late summer followed by crimson-red leaves in the fall. The gray bark of the trunk is smooth and attractive. The Bloodgood Japanese maple can be grown as a single-stem specimen or as a multi-stem specimen.
While Japanese maples grow in full sunlight, they prefer late afternoon shade and protection from strong winds. Avoid planting them in excessively hot, dry areas as the new foliage can be scorched. Be sure to water the maple and keep the root zone cool with mulch. You can make the Japanese maple the center of attention or simply use it to accent your yard. Either way, when planted in the right conditions, the Bloodgood Japanese maple is sure to be a show-stopper.
