Thanks Pam- gardengal for your quick and on-target answer.
A friend had suggested Japanese Maple but we couldn't figure out why
it wasn't red.
A Google for other images and additional info, based on the IDs found
in your answer, provided further proof and the point that some
Japanese Maples turn green in late summer.
