Burning Bush shrub

I planted mine this last spring and they are doing well. However, their fall color is a dark burgundy color. Is there a way I can encourage a brighter red color?

This is likely due to its genetics. Other options will include making sure it receives full sun, and cool temperatures a little bit above freezing. If it is above or below, then the plant may not be as brilliantly colored. These two articles will help:
