Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' (Japanese Maple) - 175cm
2 left in stock
Regarded as one of the best purple-leaved Japanese Maples, 'Bloodgood' is a large deciduous shrub or small rounded tree of great beauty in all seasons. In spring, it produces small purple flowers which give way to red fruits. While attractive close up, the flowers are however not particularly showy from a distance. The delicate spring foliage of five or seven pointed, lobed, wine-red to burgundy leaves, holds its colour in summer and turns vibrant crimson-red in fall before shredding to the ground. As the leaves fall, they expose the blackish red bark, adding interest in the winter landscape. Vigorous, this upright maple tree stands out in the landscape and is suitable as a focal point or as the perfect foil for a mass of green in the landscape. Grows up to 15-20 ft. tall.
