A Bit More

A very popular species of the popular red maple, ‘October Glory’ is distinguished by its reliable, if late, autumn color and its vigorous growth. This deciduous native of the low and wet areas of the eastern United States and Canada, ‘October Glory’ is relatively narrow and will ultimately reach 35’ wide and 40’ tall with a rounded crown if given full to part sun and moderate to heavy water. The latter treatment encourages a deep root system. ‘October Glory’ is aptly named as the 3-6” glossy dark green leaves take their time in developing their brilliant fall deep red to reddish-purple peak. Profuse clusters of pretty red flowers will precede leaf production in the late winter to very early spring and become showy samaras that bear seeds which are considered a delicacy by the squirrel, chipmunk, and bird populations.
