It's one of the hypericums.

It looks rather sad. I think you need to know what it is to treat it well, not all plants like the same treatment. Elder has a strong pungent smell which would help ID. Someone might come and make a definite ID from those photos but I can't. What features made you think it was an acer? that might help in ID

That's a lot of bush for the roots to support. It's hard to transplant something that size without damaging the more distant roots which are the important bits of root for moisture and nutrient uptake. Without these roots it can't take up water quickly and will drown.

You need to cut that back whatever it is. The roots can't support all that top growth.

Can you nip out and give it a squeeze and see if the leaves/branches have a smell. I wonder if it might be one of the black leaved elders.

C. rotundifolia is my favourite

C. persicifolia goes OK and a tallish one that comes in white and mauve, I've never worked out which one it is, a species I should think. C. trachelium is another reliable one, I like reliable

Some of the others you mention Kathy have been invasive in the root and pathetically poor in the flower for me.

I've sown C thyrsoides recently and await action.

I hope so Dove, they were never plentiful here, not like in my previous garden, but I haven't seen any evidence for years now.
