The October Glory Red Maple tree is one of the best and most popular of the Red maple cultivars. October Glory maple trees are excellent for intense fall color and have a medium to fast growth rate. This particular cultivar is the last to color in the fall usually arounnd October per its name; however some years it doesn’t color until the first weeks of November. Becuase of this owners will need to be willing to “knock snow” if we get an early snow while the tree is still leafed out. However its fascinating color is BEYOND showy and is guaranteed to make any yard owner happy.
