Red maple leaves

It is October and it is that time of the year when the maple leaves turn red again. Southern Canada, eastern United States, Scandinavia, and eastern Asia are some parts of the world well known for their fall foliage. There is even a big tourism industry around this. You might have plans to make a trip to watch the leaves turn red yourself, but do you know how to say red leaves in Chinese language?
