red leaves vs. green leaves?

Hello,
Two similar questions.
1. I have a fruitless peach tree. Some of its leaves are red; some are green. Is there a healthy way to encourage it to have red leaves?
2. I found, in my yard, a single blade of grass in a bright magenta color among a million green blades. Is this unhealthy? If not, how can I duplicate it?
Thank you.

From peaches, I don't know, but in grapes, the grape color is made in the leaf, and when the leaf gets ready to fall off, the pigments are trapped, turning the leaf red or yellow. On the other hand, being fruitless, if the leaves are making the pigments, maybe they have nowhere to go. Let me get another beer, and cogitate on this.
