Answer: While some trees (sweetgum, for instance) reliably produce fall color without a cold snap, your Japanese maples and aspens must experience some chill in order for them to react with colorful foliage. I wish there were some way to trick the plants into displaying their color, but sadly, there is not. How about adding a sweetgum to your collection? It will show fall color without cold temperatures. Best wishes with your trees!
