Bloodgood Japanese Maple is a small slender deciduous tree with an airy rounded crown and interesting red-black bark.  The large, deeply palmated dark purple-red foliage turns brilliant scarlet in fall.  Small non-showy but attractive umbels of purplish-red flowers bloom in spring followed by red samaras.  Grows best in rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Prefers full sun in cooler climates, but needs afternoon shade in southern areas.  One of the hardiest of Japanese maples, with good sun tolerance in the South.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.
