So I got this maple along with a couple other maples that were being propergated at a nursery nearby a few years ago im pretty sure they were cuttings. They rooted themselves into the ground inside my hoop house and grew pretty thick with occasionally cutting them for fun. I walked into my green house tonight and im greeted with beautiful red bushes. The only thing I've done on this 1 was guy wire down a branch last year that will eventually get cut back. Anyway I was wondering if anyone knew the cultivar of this maple. Attached are pictures.

Without the provenance, there's no way of knowing the cultivar. I will say that it "looks like" a bloodgood, particularly because it is turning a brilliant red right now. I have two bloodgoods and live in a similar USDA zone, and both trees look just like this one. It is one of the most popular landscape cultivars, and is pretty broadly available in nurseries.

It might not be a cultivar. Even stock Japanese maples can turn that color at this time of year.

True. And I think 'Bloodgood' leaves would look a bit bigger, and not as serrated. Anyway, it's almost impossible to name a cultivar that hasn't been propagated (graft, air-layering or cutting) and named from an identified specimen. I recently read, I think it was on the International Dendrology Society website) that there are more than 1,000 cultivars. Some are very similar to others.

I was just wondering i think it ended up being a tree i will really enjoy and I just didn't wanna keep referring to it as the redish pinkish japanese maple. I'll just name it Mystique and address it by its name. Thanks everyone
