I have a Japanese bloodgood tree still in a tub. Can I plant it in my lawn, expose to full sun from early on to maybe 430pm.

Japanese Bloodgood maple will do best in dappled afternoon sun. If it receives too much afternoon sunshine, the edges of the leaves will turn crispy and brown. Since the tree is still in a container, you might try moving it to a site that receives full afternoon sunshine. If, by the end of the summer, the leaves have turned brown around the margins, you'll know it won't tolerate full sun. If the foliage remains healthy looking, it will live happily in your lawn.
