Orange Fall Color

In spring and summer, we see plenty of greens and reds, even yellow.  Sure, those colors get more intense in fall and really come alive.

Orange is a completely new color that screams fall.  Surprisingly, relatively few Japanese maples show orange in fall.  One might guess Orangeola would be one of them - nope.

Hogyoku, with its large glossy green leaves goes pumpkin orange.  The airy lacey green Brocade leaves also turn a vibrant orange.

Glowing Embers has yellows and red in addition to orange but the orange steals the show!
