October Glory Red Maple trees are majestic shade trees and very colorful, especially when the intense bright orange-red fall foliage arrives. This eastern North American native botanical name is Acer rubrum, and this cultivar retains its foliage longer than most varieties, earning high praise among homeowners and landscapers that love the look of the October Glory maple leaf. Enjoy the color spectacle as the leaves drop later in the autumn season, providing beautiful, reliable color that complements the season perfectly. It is a showstopper in the spring and summer too, where its medium green foliage and rounded shape helps to make this one of the most beautiful high profile shade trees you can find!
Acer Rubrum October Glory Red Maple thrives in a spot with full sun exposure, and this bird friendly tree has low to moderate water needs once established.
