October Glory Maple Trees for Sale Online
October Glory Maple Trees are an outstanding shade tree that is a selection of red maple. It's a tall tree with a dense, rounded crown. Branches form a nicely shaped, spreading crown of lustrous green foliage that turns from brilliant orange to reddish-purple as autumn progresses. This tree will provide show-stopping fall color late into the season, longer than with most other maples. A superb choice as a high-branched shade tree for larger landscapes.
While developed from a North American native red maple, Acer rubrum, the October Glory' Maple Tree was cultivated in 1961 by Princeton Nursery so it does not qualify as a true native. With that said, it is still a great addition to your local ecosystem. Birds and pollinators will enjoy the tiny red spring flowers that create small reddish helicopter seeds later in the year.
You too will benefit from the wonderful shade this large canopy provides. If you're going to plant a focal point shade tree in your yard, what better choice than one that will brighten your day with glorious red leaves throughout the fall and rich green color in the spring and summer.
