TreeView changing text color problem

I have a treeview and I cant seem to change the forecolor on a nodes text.

The weird thing is that I can change the backcolor and that works fine. Any ideas?

'This Does works
Me.tvStatute.BeginUpdate()
Me.tvStatute.SelectedNode.BackColor = Color.Orange
Me.tvStatute.EndUpdate()

'This Doesn't work at all
Me.tvStatute.BeginUpdate()
Me.tvStatute.SelectedNode.ForeColor = Color.Orange
Me.tvStatute.EndUpdate()

Why would changing the backcolor work, but changing the forecolor not work?
Thanks,

this worked:
Private Sub TreeView1_BeforeSelect(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.TreeViewCancelEventArgs) Handles TreeView1.BeforeSelect
        e.Node.ForeColor = Color.AliceBlue
    End Sub

Yes, thats a bit different than the way I did mine though. That does work, but for me the way I showed above works for backcolor, but not forecolor.
