The color progression of 'Peach Flambé' throughout the year provides multi-seasonal interest as a superb color companion with spring yellows, summer blues, and fall oranges. The color of the leaves change throughout the year, with the brightest colors occurring in spring and fall. This is due to changes in the amount of sunlight and temperature. In spring, the days are longer, and the temperatures are warmer, which encourages the production of anthocyanins, the pigments that give the leaves their red and pink hues. In fall, the days get shorter, and the temperatures get cooler, which causes the anthocyanins to break down, resulting in the leaves turning yellow, orange, or red. The color of the leaves also changes in response to the intensity of sunlight. In full sun, the leaves will be more yellow or green, while in partial shade, they will be more red or pink. This is because the anthocyanins are more easily broken down in strong sunlight.
