    After my above comment I did what I said and move it into some direct light, I'd say sun but we haven't really had any, anyway I'm amazed at the difference just a few days has made, seems it's now well on it's way to becoming Reticulatum "Purple".
    Each picture is one day apart.

    Yes, I'd definitely underestimated the light requirements of this one

    6th July 2022 and one of the happier reticulated maples in my garden this Summer. Going very green now though.

    6th November 2022 and I wasn't sure if I would get anything from my Reticulatum Purple this Autumn, but was pleasantly surprised this morning.

    5th November 2023 and a muted display this year on my Reticulatum Purple, but not all can be vivid colours, as that spoils the over-all effect in the garden.
