    I have a 3 year old tree grown naturally (ie, sprouted from seed under the mother tree and then potted) by my neighbour. I have now placed it in the ground and it is growing very well.

    Is it true that because it is from seed that it cannot be a Bloodgood? Are only grafted trees "real" Bloodgoods? What is it called then?

    I really love Japanese maples but am only beginning to learn about them. Thanks for your help.

    'Bloodgood' NOT

    A red leafed seedling, such as this, would be properly labeled Acer palmatum f. atropurpureum.
