Shantung maple ranks high on the list for autumn colored trees with leaves that turn a gorgeous golden yellow flecked with red before they launch into orange and finally turn into a gorgeous blazing red. The Shantung maple differentiates from other maples that should not be planted here, especially the troublesome Silver maple in that the canopy is denser and the leaves are more delicate, which is reminiscent of a Japanese maple but with much greater toughness (tolerates full sun).
