Based off my understanding of できる in this context, it is used to describe something as coming to be. Would saying 紅葉ができる be a natural way of saying that the red leaves of autumn have come to be (i.e. the leaves have turned red)?

The full sentence of this context is as below.



紅葉ができて doesn't sound natural. I think [紅葉]{こうよう}する is what you're looking for. For example:


Or you could use 紅葉で (Lit. with / because of the red leaves)

    By the way, the only chance I think I could hear 紅葉ができる is in some science TV program explains leaf reddening mechanism. – broccoli facemask May 30 '15 at 14:29
