Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' is a purple-leaved Japanese maple of great beauty and quality. This large deciduous shrub or a small rounded tree has attractive, deeply lobed wine-red to purple leaves that become blood red in autumn. Small, inconspicuous, red flowers that bloom in spring are followed by samaras. Its striking blackish red bark makes it attractive even in winter when leaves fall off. Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' prefers moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil, in full sun or partial shade. It doesn’t like hot and dry locations. It is very hardy and needs sheltering only in extreme cold weather or from harsh winds. Easy to care for, it requires very little pruning. Lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. This attractive plant is perfect for small gardens, urban gardens, or rock gardens. It is also suitable for growing in containers and pots.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
