Will this turn to the burgundy color? I didn't know if their were varieties of the maples that stayed green like this?

There are various types of Acer palmatum and you have to select the right one before you buy it. They don't all change colours.
Some stay green and there isn't any-thing that will change them.

Is there any way to tell what this one will do?

Sure there is, the OP can spray paint it.

Yes, there is.

Take a really close look at it right now.

One bit of info I left out was that this back yard was completely full of trees and bushes. I think it used to be some kind of English garden. Just wanted to add that in case the shade had anything to do with it.

I would go to a retail nursery and take a look at the tree tags.

Or, one could look very, very, very closely at its current leaf color and get his answer.

There is some green varieties of these maples.
The question of will it turn red............in the fall for the Autumn Blaze. Some will dominantly turn yellow but this variety will stay green.
I have a variety that has red and yellow varigated margins.
