Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'. Photographed today, 10 June 2017, at Reedie Cottage Gardens, East Scotland. Took this photo at 4am this morning. Couldn't sleep, so went for a wander in the garden. It had been raining, but there was a break in the rain, so took the advantage of snapping some plants 😀 #acer #bloodgood #tree #rubyred #reediecottagegarden

Hope my little bloodgood turns out like this in a few years. Wishing you a better night's sleep tonight.

@houseofflowers Thanks. I had a long sleep until lunchtime, after my 4am wanderings!!! 😀 It has taken approx 12yrs for it to look like this! It was a gift, and was less than 2ft tall, and looked like a thick twig with a few thin branches. Replanted 3 times over 4yrs, to find the right place for it!!!

Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'. Photographed today, 21 May 2017, at Reedie Cottage Garden, East Scotland. Love the deep rich red foliage of this Acer, which becomes bright red in Autumn. Underplanted with Euphorbia Polychroma. #acer #bloodgood #redfoliage #euphorbia #reediecottagegarden

Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'. Photographed yesterday, 18 Oct 2016, at Reedie Cottage Gardens, East Scotland. I love how this 'Bloodgood' goes from a deep red/burgundy to an intense bright red in Autumn. You can just see the deeper colour of Physocarphus 'Diablo' in top left of pic, which makes the red of 'Bloodgood' just more intense! Over Winter, the bark of Acer 'Bloodgood' is a deep burgundy xolour, that looks fab against the snow! 😀🍁🍂🍁😀 #autumncolour #acer #bloodgood #brightred #brightcolo

Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'. I had moved this Acer 3 times, before finding its sweet spot! Starting to turn in to a real cracker now! Located in my "Secret Garden". Photo taken yesterday, 16 May 2016.
