Today’s Special is our Bloodleaf Japanese Maple. These are growing in 3 inch containers and are 8 to 15 inches tall for $5.88 each.

About ACER palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’:  Easily grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers lightly sun dappled part shade. Avoid hot and dry sites. Leaves may scorch in full sun in hot southern summers. Plant in a location protected from strong winds.

Native to Japan and Korea, Japanese maple is a multi-stemmed shrub or single-stemmed small tree that typically grows to 10-25′ tall. General plant form is rounded to broad-rounded, often with low-branching. Palmate (5-9 lobes), green leaves are 2-5″ long. Small reddish-purple flowers in umbels bloom in mid spring. As with many maples, the flowers are rather attractive close up, but are not particularly showy from a distance. Flowers are followed by samaras (to 3/4″ long) that ripen in September-October. Fall color includes shades of yellow, red-purple or bronze. Cultivars (often grafted) are quite variable. Zones 5 to 8.
