Hard to tell without a closeup of the leaves, but the large one looks like a Bloodgood in the fall and the small one on the right could be a Crimson Queen.

How long does it take for a Bloodgood to get that size?

Well, I live in Texas and mine was about 5 ft tall when I put it in...it's grown about an inch per year here...they are VERY slow growing, but that is ok by me...we have 12 different species on our acre and they are all planted as understory trees amongst our old oaks.

If I'm not mistaken, that is a Fire Glow Japanese Maple. His name is due to the intense orange color they usually get during fall and earlier spring. Japanese Maple take a lot time to grow, that's why as bigger they are , as more expensive they get. The plant in the picture could be approximately between 7 to 9 years old, the growing also depend of the soil's quality.
