October Glory Maple Tree

 
The October Glory Maple Tree is one of the most popular types of the red maple tree. It is a perfect tree for landscaping because it requires very little work. It is a fast-growing tree that takes on an oval shape at maturity. It produces red flowers in the spring, followed by dark green leaves in the summer, and an unbelievable shade of red leaves in the fall. The October maple holds its leaves longer than most trees; thus their red color lasts long into the fall. This tree will also grow in warmer climates unlike other trees of this type. October Glory' is one of two very popular selections of our native red maple chosen for outstanding fall color. The other is 'Red Sunset.' Both grow rather quickly, reaching 50-60 feet tall with an oval to pyramidal shape. They make excellent lawn and street trees, due to their ascending branches and lack of problematic surface roots. Both feature handsome, silvery bark.For the best fall color, plant in full sun. Red maple tolerates most soils, even wet ones, but does not like drought and will be among the first trees to scorch, defoliate, and die back if it doesn't get enough water in summer. Don't plant it where its roots will be restricted (like those little islands in parking lots) or near hot pavement. Prune it in summer, not winter or spring, or the cuts will bleed sap.
