Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'
Red Bloodgood Japanese Maple
The ‘Bloodgood’ Japanese maple is a classic upright red. This is the Japanese maple that made Japanese maples famous in America. Oddly enough the name 'Bloodgood' came from the family name of the owners of Bloodgood Nursery in New York and had nothing to do with its red color. Fortunately, the name fit this lovely red Japanese maple. 'Bloodgood' is extremely beautiful. This tree leafs out in the spring with bright red leaves which develop to deep maroon red. This red color provides dynamic contrast in the garden throughout the spring, summer and especially in the autumn. The fall color intensifies brighter in the fall often displaying shades of oranges and reds which will grab anyone's attention and make your yard look spectacular.
‘Bloodgood’ grows upright in habit to around 20-25 feet in thirty years. A very hardy and vigorous grower, ‘Bloodgood’ does well in sun or filtered light. This is an excellent cultivar that forms a mid-sized tree. While this is typically the first Japanese maple tree for most people, it has also become a necessity in every garden and maple collection due to its amazing red color.
