many of the cultivar is A. palmatum, you need to compare the flowers, stems, fruit, how are the carved leaves, how are serrated leaves... the color varies depending on the period, the composition of the soil, the Sun's brightness to ...Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' in the absence of the Sun is green.

I think it's a Osakazuki, It is usually red, but there are yellow forms, It is popular for fine leaves and vibrant colors. I tip my hat to you.

Leaves are green on mine, but seedlings produce green and sometimes dark red leaves, green seedlings get more red on them then adult tree. Yes fall color is stunning!

cultivars are very hard to distinguish, coloring is often very variable,
for example, here
you have two trees Yellow and Red, can be the same or different cultivars
the changes are most often caused by viruses, the most common is one branch with albino leaves-variegata, It occurs in plant and animal, sometimes completely, sometimes partially - mottled or striped
nature is a powerful sorceress Whistling

Osakazuki seems like the best guess for mine, thank you for your help!
