I'm new to gardening and wanted to verify what variety or species is the reddish/purple bush in the picture with the barberry? I guess the purple leaves are the fall color?

Please advise when you have a moment. Thanks.

The "bush" is a Japanese maple tree. They stay compact and the color is pretty much that color until the leaves fall off. Do a Google search for purple Japanese maple and you will see many small trees.

Please do not plant barberry!! It is a nasty invasive.
