Acer palmatum ´Bloodgood´

Japanese Maple
Zone: 5-8
6"-10"/ year
15' - 20' / 10 years
upright grows taller than wide

The 'Bloodgood' cultivar (non-dissected type) is a small, rounded, deciduous tree which typically grows to 15-20' tall and features purplish-red flowers in spring, deep reddish-purple summer foliage, red samaras in late summer to early fall and good crimson-red fall color. As with many maples, the flowers are rather attractive close up, but are not particularly showy from a distance. Palmate leaves (5-7 lobes) are 2-5" long. It has long been the standard for upright red Japanese maples.
