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.

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.

We bought a baby October Glory Maple in March. In a few months past, she keeps growing way more than I expected! Also, because we live in Central Texas, we had to nurse her really carefully - summer scorching is very common to new trees around here. Now is November, and she's definitely showing her Glory, as her namesake. Orange and red leaves are coming through all over. Very pretty. To get that result, we ammended (adding sulphur to our limestone soil), mulched it well and gave it at least 5 gallons of water every other day - on the spring, and EVERYDAY on the summer. It's well worth it.

Very good! First picture is when it first went in late May. The second is early August . It’s October and it continued to grow a bit more. In total I would say it grew somewhere between 3-4 feet this summer. I am hoping it lasts the winter . Some rabbits did damage to it a week after I put it in. Although the bark isn’t taken in a circle around the trunk there was still quite a bit removed. I have since surrounded it with fencing. I bought a second tree that arrived in July. It didn’t thrive as well but I think that was due to planting in the midst of a hot summer! It will most likely take off next year. Very happy with the delivery , tree and customer service
Incredible value, superb quality tree, will be going here for a all my landscaping
I was shipped a nearly 8 foot tall, incredibly strong and developed tree, it's currently dormant, but it's so beautiful, it looks good without any leaves at all. Very pleased with this purchase, honestly I buy all my trees and plants online and this is hands down the best I've ever received.
