Acer rubrum 'October Glory' is a cultivar of the red maple tree, scientifically known as Acer rubrum. It is a deciduous tree that is native to eastern North America and is widely cultivated for its ornamental value.

'October Glory' is a popular cultivar because of its stunning autumn color display. Its leaves turn a brilliant red color in the fall, making it a popular choice for landscaping and as a shade tree. It typically grows to a height of 12 to 15 meters and a spread of 9 to 12 meters.

The tree requires full sun to partial shade and grows best in moist, well-drained soil. It is a fast-growing tree and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, including acidic, alkaline, loamy, sandy, and clay soils. The tree is hardy in through most of Australia's temperate climate areas and is relatively easy to grow, making it a popular choice for gardeners and landscapers alike.

October Glory Maple are an outstanding Canadian Maple species.  Ideal for colder conditions, but still grows well as far north as Brisbane. Will benefit from annual mulching to help keep root system cool. 

Lustrous, dark green five-lobed leaves with red petioles and a greyish underside. During early autumn the leaves turn a dark pinkish-red and become an effective background colour to compliment the often superb autumn tones of brilliant red-orange to pinkish lipstick-red.
