Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'

From £84.99

Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood', is a popular, deciduous, purple-leaved Japanese Maple with vibrant purple/red lobed leaves in spring that hold their colour through the summer months. The foliage turns to a bright, vivid crimson or blood red in Autumn, which is where it's name derives from. 'Bloodgood' is considered to be one of the best of the purple-leaved Acer palmatum varieties due to its intensity of colour and extended seasonal interest.

Although not noted for flowers and fruits, it does sometimes produce small, purple flowers in the spring which are followed on by red fruits. Once the leaves drop in late autumn it features reddish-black bark which brings some colour and interest in the winter months.Japanese Maple 'Bloodgood' is bushy in habit and due to its slow growth, can live happily in the same container or spot in the garden for many years to come.

They are also ideal for novice gardeners or those with busy lives as Acers are easy to grow and require little maintenance other than watering when needed. Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' will look spectacular in any setting but will excel as a centrepiece on a patio or in a courtyard garden and look simply stunning, taking centre stage as part of a rock garden or garden planting scheme.Plant in moist, well-drained soil in a sheltered position with protection from wind. This variety will tolerate a sunnier location (mot midday sun) but prefers a semi-shaded spot. Ensure the soil is kept moist and the plant is not exposed to full sun in order to avoid leaf scorch.
