    A Palmatum Leaf Shrivel

    Hmm.. not sure what is causing this emerging new leaf shrivel on this bloodgood a. palmatum. Other leaves have unfolded just fine. It seems just recently that the new ones are shriveled. It has been warmer than usual for time of year. I just now put up the 40% shade cloth in hopes that will...

    Bloodgood Repot

    Picked up this Bloodgood last year from nursery because I thought it had good lower branch structure. I've heard these are not good specimen for bonsai because of long internodes but could be a great practice tree. Buds were starting to break so wanted to get it out of the can.

    Bloodgood repotting & styling questions

    Hey everybody, I have a few questions about what I think is a Bloodgood J.M.
