The October Glory Maple is one of the most popular Maples for many reasons. It’s well-known for its fantastic fall color. As well, the tree’s ability to adapt and perform in a wide range of climate conditions is another outstanding feature.
For several weeks, you’ll be treated to one of the most vibrant displays of any tree in your neighborhood. In fact, the display of orange, yellow and red leaves lasts far longer than many other Maples.
It would look spectacular in your yard as a central focus, or equally at home near other plantings due to its upward growth. It can grow 2 feet a year – or more!
Because every tree produced is a clone of the parent, they have a uniform and consistent look. Imagine a nice, neat row of October Glory lining your drive or planted along the fence line. You’ll love this formal look in your landscape.
This hard-working, gorgeous tree will bring you so much joy! You may not notice the tiny red flowers in spring, but your local butterflies will. Dark green leaves drape the branches all summer long and cast a wonderfully lush shade. Then the entrancing fall color display starts and keeps going and going. You’ll love this tree.

Reliable Fall Color Even in Western States
Western homeowners take heart. You don’t have to be left out of the cozy spirit of fall. October Glory is known for its ability to give a tremendous fall color display, even in the warmer climates of the western states.
Other Red Maples need constant lowering temperatures in fall to ensure good fall color. But the October Glory Maple dependably puts on a wonderful explosion of orange, yellow and red, in even the mildest fall conditions.
How to Use October Glory in the Landscape
This tree is a great choice for those looking for a formal landscape tree. Rapid growth, reliability and enduring fall color make it a perfect specimen tree.
This is an incredible shade tree in the lawn. You do need to be aware that the trunk is sensitive to weed eater damage as a young tree. It can be severely set back from weed eater contact.
We recommend that you keep a space of about 1 foot around the trunk clear of all grass. Use mulch instead. Doing this will help you clearly identify how close you or landscape staff can get to the trunk.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Great results come from selecting an appropriate planting site. Plant in full sun for best results. Give your tree at least 20 feet of space away from driveways, walkways or patios.
October Glory requires fast draining soils. For a Maple, it’s actually surprisingly tolerant to periodically wet locations – as long as the drainage is good. It won’t grow in standing water.
Provide a consistent schedule of moisture, especially when the tree is first planted. Give it more water during heat spikes.
When planted in open space, add 3 to 4 inches of mulch spread out to 3 feet outside of the canopy. This will keep the root system cool during a hot summer.
Because it prefers slightly acidic soil, feed it with an acidic fertilizer, such as Dr. Earth Acid Lover in the spring. Prune it in fall or winter.
Most importantly, love this tree with its amazing fall show. Order yours today!
