    Assuming the Acer Deborah tag is accurate, here's a very young Acer platanoides 'Deborah' I saw in a yard today. All my photos showed only male flowers.

    COPF plant introduced by Cannor Nurseries 1975-6 and

    characterized by a vigorous, oval-rounded growth habit; strong, sturdy trunk; excellent insect and disease resistance; and unique leaf development; the new leaves are a rich ruby-red and display a unique wrinkled-crinkled appearance. The margins are crinkled and undulating, giving the entire tree a bright almost sparkling appearance; as the leaves mature, the ruby-red color changes to deep maroon and finally dark green; the entire color metamorphosis takes place over a 4 to 6 week period

    But presumably just as invasive as other Norway Maples . . .

    Look at it again in a month or two, and I'll be surprised if it doesn't have big bunches of seeds hanging.
