Fast-Growing with Long-Lasting Color

October Glory 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.

The October Glory Maple 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 on your October Glory Red Maple tree. 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 Red Maple tree.
