Acer Bloodgood is one of the best dark red selections of the Japanese Maple. Bloodgood forms an upright tree with a spreading crown developing with age. The deep maroon red foliage keeps its colour well from spring to autumn.
Ideal as small shade trees, screens, garden fillers or tub specimens and can even be espaliered against walls or trellis.
Japanese maples generally enjoy a sunny sheltered spot in any garden with good well-drained soil. A good organic mulch will help to keep the roots cool and moist during the hot dry spells experienced over the summer months.
