The Brightest Red Fall Foliage Available

Why October Glory Red Maple Trees?

An improved cultivar over all other Red Maple Trees, the October Glory boasts superior red color that's truly dazzling. In fact, it's got some of the brightest red color available despite the fact that it 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. The October Glory's proud display of red foliage shines while other trees are bare. And in the spring, it produces bold red flowers that pop against the backdrop of vibrant green, all growing effortlessly. Hours spent toiling in the garden are a thing of the past - but with the October, you'll still have the best landscape on the block.

Why is Better

You get reliable color that is less dependent on the weather as other maples. Plus, your October Glories will even grow in warmer climates - areas not typically suited for trees that specialize in fall color.

But the best part is that we’ve planted, grown and nurtured your October Glory Red Maple Tree for absolute best results. We’ve meticulously cared for each tree at our nursery, months ahead of time. And now, you get a proven performer with more developed branching and a healthier, fuller root system.

Order your trees soon because supplies are limited for this always-popular tree! Get your October Glory today.

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 backfill with enriched, loose soil. Water thoroughly after the root ball has been established and place a layer of thick protective mulching over the topsoil 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.

Looking good

Overall they seem to be doing well they did not go into shock so that’s a plus will wait to see how big they get this year. As they were planted in May

I love the tree, but,,,,

It arrived in good shape, but our hot dry spell caused leaves to get crispy edges and eventually the whole leaf was dry. I misted it every few hours andmoved it out of the sun. Last week, I put it in a place where it gets morning sun for about an hour and late afternoon sun for about an hour as well. The tree seems to be doing better, but I am afgraid to let it have full sun. It is in its original container and I gave it one dose of Romeo Plant Food about five days ago. Since it is so dry here, I keep the soil moist and am told by gardeners here in El Paso to water morning and again when the sun goes down. I really hope the tree makes it as I really love taking care of all the plants I bought from you. Thank you so much!
