This tried and true Acer palmatum remains a distinguished landscape favorite. ‘Bloodgood’ is a problem-free specimen and a hardy, vigorous grower capable of providing up to 20’ of symmetrical, rounded branching. It is a multi-stemmed small tree that shows off enchanting silvery bark, attention-grabbing crimson stems and deep burgundy star shaped leaves, all of which perfectly enhance the notable natural grace of this popular specimen. Non-dissected leaves hold their rich color all summer long, making it perfect for a patio or as a small shade tree and the show continues through autumn and winter, when the deep red foliage turns flaming scarlet before dropping to expose the shimmering gray bark that sparkles against snow. ‘Bloodgood’ grows well in sun or shade, but for best performance provide afternoon shade and keep its roots cool.
