The Japanese Red Maple tree is one of the prettiest ornamental trees and there are so many varieties of this type of tree. Some have green
foliage while the leaves on others are red. The variety 'Bloodgood' is a red-leaf variety and the red color remains during spring, summer and fall.
You can see how vivid the red color is in the photos below. The first photo was taken at a house I lived in...I can honestly say I enjoyed this tree almost all year long.
Whether out in the open or placed with an evergreen tree behind it (so that the color really pops) this tree is definitely one of my favorite ornamental trees.
As you can see, this tree does not get that large. Many homeowners search for small landscape trees due to limited space or to place in an area where a larger tree just won't fit.
I can't imagine a place where this tree would not look great. It is really one of my favorites. I know, I have so many, but this is definitely at the top of my list.

I've provided wonderful photos. This is the type of book that is easy to read, a quick reference and that you will help you choosing the right trees for your property.
In the book are my favorite trees that I use in designs for clients. Some of these designs won awards!
"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant. You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
