Acer palmatum ‘Bloodgood’

The Bloodgood cultivar is one of the most popular Japanese Maples in the US and the standard by which all purple-leaf (var. atropurpureum) cultivars are measured. As other purple/red leaf cultivars typically fade or bronze in the full sun, the Bloodgood is prized for its ability to retain its color in the harshest light conditions. For more information about the Bloodgood Japanese Maple and its origin, please visit www.japanesemaple.org. Planting instruction can be found at boydnursery.net/planting/.

What am I buying?

We sell Bloodgood Japanese Maples as trees grown from rooted cuttings. Taken from Wikipedia, “a plant cutting is a piece of a plant that is used in horticulture for vegetative (asexual) propagation. A piece of the stem or root of the source plant is placed in a suitable medium such as moist soil. If the conditions are suitable, the plant piece will begin to grow as a new plant independent of the parent, a process known as striking.” Put more simply, a rooted cutting is a small clone of the specimen from which it was taken. As a genetically identical clone, the cutting shares all the characteristic traits and attributes of the cultivated variety. Our rooted cuttings are 3-6 months old and 4-8 inches in stem length above the soil line. They are clipped from our private stock plants and grown in root pruning trays at our temperature controlled greenhouse.
