I have posted this tree over the years...most every year the leaves usually turn to a brilliant yellow....I am really enjoying this year's change. Tom

It looks really nice, the orange looks nice with the blue color or the pot. I am jealous, here in Mobile, AL, rarely do I get color like that.

Thanks to you all for the kind words....Judy: I am not sure why the color change this year....the climate here (northern West Virginia) was very very dry during the growing season, as was the case, of course in many other areas of the US...Also, this is a green-leaved cultivar during the growing season (A. palmatum dissectum flavescens). Just not sure....sorry.

Regards,
Tom

I thought maybe a repot in different substrate, as I know that soil content can affect coloration...
I've seen trees vary somewhat, but this one sounds pretty extreme, very interesting....Thanks for the reply!

The chemistry behind good fall colors is complex.

http://www.sciencebuff.org/collections/research-collections/botany/bright-fall-colors/

From the above linked article: "Dry weather concentrates sugar in the cell sap, which speeds up manufacture of red compounds. So the most colorful autumns depend on the weather. Dry, sunny days of an Indian summer that are followed by cool, dry nights will create the best season for the fall leaf show."
