Is there an Acer that does not lose its leaves?

We bought an Acer palmatum Dissectum Atropurpureum however did not realise that it lost its lovely red leaves at this time of year. Are there any types that keep their leaves all year round?



Hello Sneezy. Not really is the short answer to your question. The Acer campestre is Britain's only native maple and if you live in a mild area (you don't specify) then it may stay green (not red or purple) in mild years. The Acer species are deciduous.
