Key Features: Bright red leaves; stunning year-round foliage; perfect for small gardens; able to withstand harsh conditions;
The Bloodgood Maple is a variant of the Japanese Maple that gets its name from its stunning colour of foliage. In 2002 it was recognised by the Royal Horticulture Society and was given the Award of Garden Merit in 2002. The Japanese Maple is a very popular choice for residential areas due to its small size with a small height and a small spread. During the summer time the tree can be seen with dark red and purple leaves which stay this colour right through until Autumn where they then start to turn this bright red colour which provides a great contrast in colour in the garden. This beautiful colour can give a magnificent display in a garden, especially on long summer evenings.
The Bloodgood performs best in rich and well drained soils. It is very tolerable to many different soil types and also is a hardy tree being able to survive many harsh cold conditions.
