Description

Are you looking for a tree that adds beauty and appeal to your yard? If so, the Bloodgood Japanese Maple is the tree for you. Whether you are looking for a focal point or a tree that adds pizzazz to your landscape, the Bloodgood Japanese Maple with its exquisite color is a top choice. You are guaranteed to have color and beauty all year round! 

Features:  In its maturity the Bloodgood Japanese Maple will reach between 15-20 ft tall, with a trunk that is only as big and round as a drinking cup.  One of the most attractive features of the Bloodgood Japanese Maple is its ability to retain its color throughout the season. A deep shade of burgundy appears in the spring and lasts throughout summer. In the cool months of autumn a bright red takes over. Even the bark of a Bloodgood Japanese Maple catches the eye with its silver color.

Maintenance:  They are partial to full sun and adaptable to various soils. Bloodgood Japanese Maples grow in zones 5-9.  These beautiful trees are low maintenance and disease and pest resistant.  Prune in the winter if needed, removing crossing branches.  There is no need to shear a Japanese Maple; you want to keep it looking natural.  Fertilize with a high quality slow release fertilizer in the spring.

How To Care

When planting your Bloodgood Japanese Maple be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive.  Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant.  However, if you avoid freezing and hot temperatures you can plant your Maple almost any time of the year.  

Bloodgood Japanese Maples tolerate full sun to part shade. Bloodgoods are one of the few Japanese Maples that tolerates full sun even in warmer zones. Like other Japanese maples you may see some leaf scorch when they are young, especially if they are not getting adequate water.  Keep your tree watered if you do notice leaf scorch, but don't panic.  Leaf Scorch is not going to affect the overall health of your tree.  Japanese Maples prefer soil that is well-drained, but moist, neutral to slightly acidic, and nutrient rich.  However, Japanese Maples will adapt to a variety of soils.  Mulching will keep the roots moist and protect them from extreme temperatures in winter.  Add a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch.  Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease.  Japanese Maples should be watered often enough to keep the soil moist.  Do not allow the the soil to dry completely or be overly saturated.  Either condition can harm a Japanese Maple.  Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a slow release fertilizer.  When planting take care not to burn the roots by mixing the fertilizer into the soil before placing your tree in the hole. Japanese Maples don't generally require pruning, but, if needed, prune when they are dormant to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches, or to maintain shape.  

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants.  Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale, Mites, and Aphid are insects that can occasionally affect Bloodgood Japanese Maples. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap.  For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Another potential pest of Japanese Maples is the Japanese Beetle. Look into parasitic nematodes and bacillus thuringiensis for effective, organic control of this pest.

Landscape Ideas

Bloodgood Japanese Maples are suitable for small spaces. They can be planted near other trees or shrubs but are amazing as specimen trees.  If you have an area that could use some height, plant your Bloodgood in the middle.  Then add some yellow or blue shrubs under and around your center piece.  Check out our landscape section for design ideas using Japanese Maple Trees.

Packaging

The Japanese Maple is a nice tree. Unfortunately, the box may have opened during transit. Fed Exp secured it with some tape so further damage wouldn't come to the tree. It came with a few broken branches, but was still good enough to plant. My only suggestion would be to secure the ball end to avoid the tree from sliding around in the box. Thank you
