Acer palmatum Bloodgood 10 Ltr Pot

Regular price €64.95

Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' is a stunning deciduous tree renowned for its vibrant foliage and graceful form. 

Height/Spread: When grown in a 10 Ltr pot, 'Bloodgood' typically reaches a height of around 6-8 feet (1.8-2.4 meters) and has a spread of 4-6 feet (1.2-1.8 meters). Its compact size makes it suitable for smaller gardens or container planting.

Position: 'Bloodgood' thrives in a position that receives partial shade to filtered sunlight. It benefits from some protection against strong winds and extreme temperatures, particularly in colder regions.

Soil: Well-draining soil is essential for the successful growth of 'Bloodgood'. It prefers fertile, slightly acidic to neutral soil with good organic content. Aim for a pH range of 6.0-7.0.

Flowering Season: While 'Bloodgood' is primarily valued for its foliage, it does produce inconspicuous flowers in spring. The main attraction, however, is the rich burgundy to purple foliage that emerges in spring and maintains its color throughout the growing season.

Uses: 'Bloodgood' is an excellent choice for adding beauty and interest to gardens. Its striking foliage provides a dramatic focal point, and the tree's graceful form enhances landscapes. It can be planted as a specimen tree, used in mixed borders, or even grown in containers to adorn patios and courtyards.

In the Irish climate, it is advisable to provide additional protection in colder winters, as 'Bloodgood' may benefit from sheltered positions or wrapping with horticultural fleece during severe frosts.
