One of the best Japanese Maples for full sun. Bloodgoods can take bright sun that would normally burn the leaf edges of other Japanese Maples. Very easy to grow. The leaves turn a bright scarlett red in the fall. Creates filtered shade which allows other plants such as hosta to thrive under its canopy. Perfect for planting next to patios and decks.

How to Care for Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Bloodgood Japanese Maple plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.


Additional Information

The Bloodgood Japanese Red Maple was introduced into the United States before World War II. It is a cultivar named after the Bloodgood Nursery in Long Island, New York, where it was developed.
