    Could someone please identify this maple. I am in Switzerland and it is late Autumn now although not yet winter weather. I thought it might be Osakazuki but most of the descriptions and images I see has it as red for Autumn.

    However, there are about 10 of these trees in gardens around here and they all have a good mix of yellow, orange/red and purple. Considering how noticeable the Autumn colour is and how common it is here, I am surprised not to find similar images on a google search. Any help would be appreciated. Really like to get one of these trees.

    Your photo is too blurred to be sure but I think that's a Liquidambar styracyflua, not a maple.

    Hello Alain, thank you very much. I was thinking of getting some leaves to show a close up but looking through google, it is definitely the right tree. Maybe I get one anyway.
