October Glory Red Maple—Often used to line driveways or boulevards, October Glory Maples quickly mature into a beautiful oval shape, growing to between 40 and 50 feet. The leaves drop later in the season than other trees so autumn color continues while other trees are bare.

Spring brings lovely small red flowers that contrast against the verdent backdrop of spring. Showy red fruit attracts birds. The reliable color is less dependent on the weather than other maples.

This low-maintenance, yet fast-growing, tree is an ideal landscaping tree requiring minimal attention! October Glories are ideal for warmer Southern climates, too, bringing New England color to your landscaping.
