Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood', commonly known as Bloodgood Japanese Maple, is a deciduous tree species that is native to Japan, Korea, and China. It belongs to the family Sapindaceae and is widely cultivated for its ornamental value.
Bloodgood Japanese Maple typically grows to a height of 4-6 meters and has a spreading, vase-shaped crown. It produces medium-green, palmate leaves with 5-7 lobes that turn a deep, burgundy red in the fall. The leaves are accompanied by small, red flowers that appear in spring and are followed by paired, winged samaras in summer.
Bloodgood Japanese Maple is a slow-growing tree that prefers partial shade and well-drained, acidic soil. It is relatively low-maintenance but requires regular watering, particularly during periods of drought. It is often used in landscaping as a focal point or specimen tree, and its compact size makes it suitable for smaller gardens or container planting. The tree's striking foliage and attractive form also make it a popular choice for bonsai cultivation.
