It's all about white balance if it's the color that's giving you problems. Try changing your white balance around between the different settings (Sunny, Cloudy, Tungsten, Florescent, etc) or if your camera has actual Kelvin white balance settings, try playing around with those. Eventually, you should be able to hit the right white balance that'll get you the color you're looking for. Of course, if you shoot RAW, you can change the white balance at any time during your RAW conversion.
