Enkianthus perulatus, it's really that color
I remember these plants from 19 years ago. They've gotten a bit bigger but the fall color is outrageous and dependable. They grow alongside the path to the red Pagoda. I noticed, somewhat tardily, a few weeks back that a few lower branches on the Cryptomeria above them needed removal; it takes sun to make color. I guess we must have removed them out in time.
