It's all about the drama. I have a few beautiful Bonfire dwarf ornamental peach trees in my flower border. In the spring they produce beautiful pink blossoms which fade and give way to most spectacular burgundy foliage! The leaf color holds for most of the season, only changing to a greenish hue at the end of the summer. I really like the leaf color as a counterpoint to everything else going on in my flower border—which morphs from purples to pinks throughout the season—but the main thing is that I have lots of lime green foliage, and these peach tree leaves look great against that lime green! The peach trees produce a little fuzzy hard peach pits, but they are not edible—just fuzzy and cute. But the leaves... those are dramatic!
