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.
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. (Source: plantingtree.com)
