Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' (Japanese Maple)
We know what you're thinking. 'Bloodgood' isn't anything rare or unusual so why is Yew Dell taking up space in the nursery with it. We are always in search of the next coolest and best thing for our garden but sometimes the saying, "If it isn't broken don't fix it" holds true with plants too. During the early spring the three 'Bloodgood' in our arboretum are some of the most stunning plants on the property. Screaming scarlet colored new growth persists for weeks and then turns into a deep burgundy color that holds until leaf drop in November. It matures at about 25 feet by 25 feet as the ones in the arboretum have. Just an absolute dynamite plant.
