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 fast-growing October, you'll still have the best landscape on the block.

Customer Reviews & Photos
November Glory in CA
This is a 7 yr old October Glory in the Bay Area CA. I call it my November Glory since it doesn't turn red until November. In years 3-4, consider trimming off the lower branches if they seem too heavy and make the tree look bushy. Trim them off and the tree will focus its energy on grown up (and not out). 100% satisfied with this beautiful tree.

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.
