I already mentioned the example of Crimson King Norway maple trees; their leaves are an interesting purplish-green in summer -- a color that only deepens when autumn arrives. Red Japanese maples (Acer palmatum 'Atropurpureum') follow a similar pattern. They display red-colored leaves all summer that only intensify in autumn, becoming a brighter red.
