The red color should hold throughout the summer and it will drop it's leaves in late fall. Despite the fact that the leaves don't seem to have much surface area, this maple still likes a bit of shade in the afternoon to prevent scorching of the leaf tips. But it does need a few hours of direct sun each morning.

Thanks for the reply GeoDOOD! I think I got it positioned just right for morning sun.. and in the shade come afternoon and evening. so far so goo.
