Acer palmatum - Bloodgood

'Bloodgood' is a vigorous upright tree that reaches 3-5m in ten years.  It's capable of developing a leaf-crown almost as wide as it is high. Although it is one of the larger A. palmatum cultivars, it is nevertheless a small tree that can look proportional for smaller yards. Its growth rate is moderately swift when young but at around seven or ten feet it slows down considerably. Trunks & main limbs of mature specimens are grey, but younger branches & twigs are red-black. It is commonly though not invariably multi-trunked, depending on its youthful training. 

Height:  5 metres.
Width:   5 metres.
Growth rate: Fast.
Form: Upright rounded
Foliage: Beautiful lobed leaves are deep purple in summer
Autumn colour: Scarlet
Tolerances: Like other Japanese maples, it needs a sunny or partially shaded spot which is protected from cold winds. The soil should be moist but well-drained. It is suitable for growing in a large container, using John Innes No 3 compost, but must be kept well-watered.
Landscape use: Great for small gardens, driveways and avenues
