Asked by: Mf
Hello, thank you for your question. The spring is a great time to plant the 'Bloodgood maple tree. Unfortunately, state or federal governmental rules prevent us from shipping the tree to Texas at this time.

Customer Reviews

1 gal. Bloodgood Red Japanese Maple Tree is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality The tree arrived very well packed. However I was disappointed. The leaves have curled brown tips and white spots on the leaves. It was not very well cared for prior to being shipped out. The leaves are very dark although some new growth has appeared. I usually buy in the store so I know what I am getting. Hopefully now that the Japanese Maple has a good home it will thrive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very pleasant purchase This is my first online purchase of a plant that could hardly be found in any local stores. I got the confidence from reading other reviews, as well as the life-time warranty Home Depot offers. What can I lose? It was a fun, exciting experience from receiving it in perfect condition to seeing many leaves emerged after we planted it. Would do it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new Japanese Maple Tree I just bought (about May 1st) at my local Home Depot store, the most beautiful 10 ft tall Japanese maple tree, and had to haul it home in the back of an open pick-up truck. That's 50 miles of freeway driving that this tree had to endure, and...with the expected wind burn that cost all of its first set of leaves. I did worry that the wind burn might have done it in, but...NOPE, she's alive and putting out a whole new set of leaves. As of today, June 1st, my tree is almost back to where she was when I chose her, and I honestly could not be any happier if I had won the lottery!! I live in deer country and Japanese Maples are wonderfully 'deer resistant' to the point of being 'deer proof' which is why I chose this beautiful tree.

The tree appears very healthy and I look forward to many years of beautiful color to my commmunity garden. Please add other variety such as the red lace leaf tree to your collection

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware! The Japanese Maple Trees being sold here are not grown in the root ball that they are packed in. When you cut the burlap bag that they are contained in, you will find that all the main roots of the tree have been severed when it was dug out of the ground and made to fit into its bag, then the bag is packed with clay to hold moisture to keep it alive until you plant the tree.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Affordable, fast, but unhealthy? PROS: I think I paid a good price for a tree of this age, and it arrived within 2 days of me placing the order. CONS: The tree arrived looking anything but healthy. A dozen leaves fell as soon as I took it out of the box, and what remained on the tree were patchy, partially withered, dry leaves. Bottom Line: So far it's still alive, but I can't come to conclusions on this review because winter hasn't hit and that will be the real test to whether I received a healthy plant or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Japanese Maple The Japanese Maple I purchased on-line from Home Depot is doing very well, has a lot of new growth. Buying potted plants instead of bare-rooted is so much better for the plants and their chance at survival. The free shipping is great!
