Are these typically mounding or somewhat upright? I'm not seeing many photos of the whole tree...just the leaves!

It is upright but shrubby.

Here is a link that might be useful: Acer palmatum 'Shaina'

Thank you VERY MUCH gardengal! So a little bit of both! LOL...

RE: Info on JM Shaina

It is NOT a mounding tree like a dissectum it just tends to be a bit more twiggy and thickly leafed, dense ( not stupid)...again depending on where you live and it's siting Most put it in the dwarf to semi dwarf vicinity of "acerdom" I think semi dwarf is more correct it is a sport of the Bloodgood with similar color... but not shape or habit...It would be IMHO a semi dwarf upright A.P Palmatum.
