I am looking to plant a Burgundy Lace Japanese Maple in full sun in a zone 9 climate. Is this tree prone to sunburn?

Japanese maple leaves are prone to both sun and wind burn. Your tree will look more attractive if it's planted in a protected spot where it will get shade from the hottest afternoon sunshine.
