    This little tree is a star in my garden. I'm in zone 9, but it holds its color despite the summer heat. If you must plant it this far south, make sure it's an understory planting surrounded by larger trees, and keep it well-watered.

    afer comparing Japanese Maples, I came
    across the Bloodgood Maple and knew that
    my search was over. The colors are outstanding as is the shape of the tree.

    Mine was planted as a 10-year anniversary present for my husband in 1980. It is still beautiful, but is beginning to show some leaf and limb dieback on one side, but I would still recommend it.

BLOODGOOD UPRIGHT JAPANESE MAPLE Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

Japanese Maples are moderately easy to grow and adapt to most conditions; however, they do prefer to be planted in an area that is well protected from wind, heat exposure, and drought like conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.
