Why October Glory Red Maple Trees?
An improved cultivar over all other Red Maple Trees...the superior red color of the October Glory Maple is truly dazzling. And it’s an ideal landscaping tree since it’s fast-growing and requires minimal attention.
Even better? Its leaves drop later in the autumn season than other trees, so you have more time to enjoy the show. You'll enjoy your October Glory's proud display of red foliage while other trees are bare. And in the spring, it produces bold red flowers that pop against the backdrop of spring green.

October glory red maple in Laguna hills
The maple is growing fast ever since I planted it a week ago in April 1st. on Friday that same week, small leaves started sprouting, and since then, it was growing fast. It is now tuesday and the leaves are double the size. The thing is, they are drooping even though I planted it in well draining soil with the tree being raised. Im in zone 10a, but there are people that grow this tree. Temps have been fairly mild
Healthy trees securely packaged and arrived undamaged.
So far so good. The two trees I ordered arrived undamaged. The potting soil was still wet. I planted them the same day I received them. In addition to manual watering it's rained several times since planting. I'm hoping for good results in the spring.
Stunning and thriving!
I always wait at least a year to review plants and I've now had this beauty of a tree for three years. It is thriving and gorgeous! It's grown several feet and the color of the leaves are absolutely vibrant and breathtaking. It is a stunning accent to the beautiful sugar maples we have in our yard. We love it so much we're going to take down a few lotus trees to plant a few more of these on our hill.
I was very worried ordering a tree over the internet. It arrived perfect! I can't wait till she grows and becomes a beautiful fall tree in my front yard.
Excellent place and great value to buy all your trees.
Tree came better than expected been planted for 3 weeks looks good tree came package in box a lot of leaves on tree taller than expected
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Though it's tolerant of soggy soils, October Glory prefers well-drained soil and full sun exposure (at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily). When you're ready to plant, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball and as deep. Plant the root ball in the hole and back fill with enriched, loose soil. Water thoroughly after the root ball has been established and place a layer of thick protective mulching over the top soil to control for weeds, pests, and suckers.
2. Watering: The October Glory Maple will appreciate a minimum of one and a half inches of water per week, whether from rainfall or irrigation. This translates to about one thorough watering from the garden hose each week (water for about 30 seconds to 1 minute).
3. Fertilizing: Use a slow release fertilizer in a 10-10-10 formula twice per month during the growing season. Cease fertilizing when the tree is nearing its dormancy stage.
