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
After 8 years, our "November Glory" gets more beautiful with each year and I can't wait to see it grow each and every year. I highly recommend it to anyone considering this tree. The sooner you plant it, the sooner you enjoy its glory. :-)
The product arrived in great condition. I recommend Fast Growing Trees for good products but even better customer service. Hands down, this company understands the importance of customer service. My hat is off to all involved in this company.
The October Glory Maple we received was very nicely packed and did not appear to have suffered at all from transport. It looked like a very good specimen and It was the exact size ordered...it was shipped very soon after we ordered, and received very quickly. We put it in the ground the same day as received with good soil and are now hoping it will come to life after winter. We planted it late Fall so we will not know for sure how well it is adjusting until Springtime, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Oct. Glory red maple
The tree arrived and looked great. Have to wait for spring as we proceeded to have three below freezing nights after planting. So, the tree is pretty dormant now.
October Glory Red Maple!
These babies will look great in a few years. Bright colors and I can't wait to see them in all their glory. Wonderful looking and will provide color to my new house after the fires took me out in 2017. The Oaks all burned so I thought I'd try these. So far they are doing great! Bill Santa Rosa, CA
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.
