The award-winning Bloodgood cultivar is a small rounded tree that matures to a relatively large size for a Japanese Maple, with a different display of beauty in each season. In spring, it produces small purple flowers which give way to red fruits. While attractive close up, the flowers are however not particularly showy from a distance. The delicate spring foliage of five or seven pointed, lobed, wine-red to burgundy leaves, holds its color in summer and turns vibrant crimson-red in fall before shedding to the ground. As the leaves fall, they expose the blackish red bark, adding interest in the winter landscape. Vigorous, this upright maple tree stands out in the landscape and is suitable as a focal point or as the perfect foil for a mass of green in the landscape. The Bloodgood Japanese Maple reaches a mature height and width of 15 ft and lives most comfortably in USDA Cold Hardiness Zones 5-9.
