The foliage is held on the tree later into fall than with most other maples. A superb choice as a high branched shade tree for larger landscapes.
October Glory Maple is a favorite specimen tree for spectacular fall foliage! Branches form a nicely shaped, spreading crown of lustrous green, pointed foliage that turns brilliant orange to reddish purple as autumn progresses.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased October Glory Maple Tree plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of October Glory Maple Tree to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.
