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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
My tree took will and is already has leaves. Very pleased with our purchase.
This company has been wonderful. The product we order was on time. We ordered a October glory maple tree. And fire burning bushes
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.
I purchased 2 Oct Glory Red Maple Tress at 5-6 foot in mid November. Trees arrived promptly. They appear to be healthy with a few leaves and buds that seem to be ready to grow in the Spring. Size of trees that arrived was as advertised. Roots appeared to have been in the container probably longer than recommended given the coiling of the roots. Ordering process was very simple and easy. Now we will just wait and see how they do in the Spring and over the next few years. I am cautiously optimistic about their chances. Time will tell. I will try to give an update late next year.
I love this tree. It came with o my 3 leaves but I need now new leaves growing. It looks alive and healthy so far.
