This acer began with a small green leaf and was quite compact then during the summer it developed long brances with large red leaves. I first thought this was maybe a root stock but when I looked more closely both leaf types are on the same branch. Has anyone any idea what has happened and should i just prune off the branch tips to remove the larger leaves??
Thanks
