fall trees/plants

"what kind of trees/plants can i plant in my zone 10 that will give me the fall colors,like maple trees,etc thank you g rredondo"
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

Well there is almost no species that will do this in  your climate. Bold fall colors are caused by the slowing down of the leaf cycle by warm days and cool nights. Trees that show a lot of color such as maples do not do well in zone 10."
