     'October Glory' lives up to its name with some of the most beautiful fall foliage of any I've seen.  A cross between Red Maple and Silver Maple, 'October Glory' provides  3-season interest with its twigs, flowers and fruit all tinged red.


     Maple trees are considered Keystone Plants because they supports hundreds of caterpillar species, which in turn provide a food source for birds, as do the spring fruits.
