Bloodgood's richly colored foliage and small size make it an ideal accent tree. Artfully spreading branches grow slowly into a nicely rounded form without any pruning. Maple-shaped leaves are burgundy for most of the summer, turning fantastic shades of red in the fall. Purplish red flowers in early spring are interesting, and a nice bonus! The burgundy foliage stands out beautifully next to green or yellow-leaved plants. Lovely as a colorful accent near the patio, in home foundation plantings or shrub border. The best exposure for Japanese maples is morning sun and afternoon shade, although dappled sun or part sun locations also work well. Hot sun may burn the leaves and too much shade tends to diminish the color.
