The Bloodgood Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood') is a stunning and graceful ornamental tree prized for its vibrant red foliage, elegant branching structure, and adaptability to various growing conditions. This deciduous plant offers year-round interest and is an excellent choice for gardeners seeking to add a touch of color and elegance to their landscapes.
The Bloodgood Japanese Maple is a small to medium-sized tree that typically reaches heights of 12-15 feet and a width of 15-25 feet. The plant features deeply lobed, dark red leaves that maintain their color throughout the growing season before turning a fiery red in the fall. The tree has an elegant, multi-branched structure with a rounded, spreading canopy, giving it a distinctive and refined appearance.
This resilient plant thrives in full sun to partial shade and requires well-draining soil. It is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only occasional pruning to maintain its shape and promote vigorous growth. The Bloodgood Japanese Maple is cold-hardy, capable of withstanding temperatures down to -20°F, which makes it suitable for a wide range of climates.
The Bloodgood Japanese Maple produces small, inconspicuous flowers in the spring, typically before the leaves emerge. The flowers are red-purple and form in clusters, adding a subtle touch of color and visual interest to the tree. While the flowers are not the primary ornamental feature of the plant, they provide an understated beauty that complements the vibrant foliage.
Following the flowering stage, the Bloodgood Japanese Maple produces fruit in the form of small, winged seeds called samaras. The samaras are approximately 1 inch long and mature from green to red before turning brown in the fall. While the fruit is not considered a significant feature of the plant, the winged seeds add a subtle visual interest and provide a source of food for birds and other wildlife.
