With its spectacular red foliage, Acer Palmatum Bloodgood (Japanese Maple) is often grown as a specimen tree, adding colour, shape and texture to most any landscape setting, large or small.
Although mature Acers can reach heights of 20 feet, Acer Palmatum Bloodgoods tend to be slow growers and relatively compact, which makes them also suitable for smaller gardens.
Now, in mid-Summer, we take a closer look the Acer Palmatum Bloodgood. The leaves have darkened somewhat compared to the first fiery red of Spring. Seen here in a Southern UK setting, the foliage is more burgundy, almost deep purple, in colour.
Acer Palmatum Bloodgood produces attractive red-winged ‘helicopter’ seed pods in mid-summer.
