Looking for a beautiful and hardy tree to add to your landscape? Look no further than the Acer palmatum ssp. matsumurae 'Bloodgood', also known as the Bloodgood Japanese Maple. This red-leaved variety produces a high proportion of red-leaved offspring and is slightly hardier than green-leaved types. The fall color is sensational and the winter silhouette, coupled with the smooth gray bark, provides interest all year round. Our seed is collected from large nursery blocks of pure 'Bloodgood' trees, ensuring a very high percentage of resulting seedlings will resemble the parent cultivar. This seed is preferred by many wholesale growers and the mother trees are strong growing with deep black-red leaves that last well into the summer. Don't miss out on adding this stunning tree to your landscape today!
