Red Maple - October Glory

Fast-Growing with Long-Lasting Color


This Red Maple (Acer rubrum October Glory) is known for its rapid growth and enduring fall color. In fact, its “October Glory” display of orange-red leaves lasts far longer than many other Maples. 


For several weeks you will be treated to one of the most vibrant displays of any tree in your neighborhood. It would look spectacular in your yard as a central focus, or equally at home near other plantings due to its narrow, upward growth.


October Glory is one of the most popular Maples for many reasons.  Tiny spots of fiery red flower clusters appear on the bare branches in the spring while the rest of your yard is still muted in browns and greys. 


The birds will flock to the small, elongated red fruits that accompany the flowers.  Glossy green leaves will appear next, some slightly tinted with a reddish hue.  As summer progresses, your Maple will grow 2 feet or more, achieving an oval-rounded form for optimal shade.


The October Glory can reach heights of 50' tall and 40' wide.  It’s far more tolerant of some soil and weather conditions than other Maples, and forgiving of a neglectful nature. 


For a carefree, rapid-growth Maple of vibrant color you can’t do better than the October Glory.

Nice shaped tree Review by Kate

I like the neat, uniform shape of the October Glory tree. I wish I had room in my front yard for another one like I have in the backyard.
Shade Review by Perry

October Glory trees develop quite dense shade and I am looking for it to shade the south side of my house to help lower my electricity costs in the summer. It is really thickly foliaged now, it just needs to get a little taller to make a difference, I hope.

I HAD WONDERED IF I HAD MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE WHEN BUYING THIS RED MAPLE, AND NOW I KNOW I HAVE. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE RED COME OUT IN THE FALL.

My October Glory shades my patio all summer and then just lights up the yard with color in fall. Love this tree.
