Bloodgood maple turning green - can I get it replaced?
We live in the SF Bay Area and I've read up on postings regarding many suppliers selling bloodgood maples that are not the true variety which can turn green during the summer. My landscaper planted 3 such bloodgood maples and all 3 have turned into various shades of green.
Here are the photos:

It also appears that the leaves aren't completely identical from tree to tree, which suggests that they're not all the same kind of maple. I don't know if bloodgood maples should all have matching leaves.
I complained to the landscaper and the response was that maples turning green is normal due to level of sun, temperature, etc. Can I challenge this claim and note that the trees aren't true bloodgoods and make him replace them? Is it considered deceptive to sell trees marked as bloodgoods that aren't of the type that will retain its color year round?
Note: our nextdoor neighbor's maples still appear red, so I suspect it's not due to weather that ours have turned green.
