A full standard tree. Reddish-brown young branches and petioles. Large deep green, coriaceous leaves, with glaucous underside; they remain on branches until late autumn. Lovely bright orange or deep red autumn colours. The actual look of the plant and the name of the plant, October Glory, does remind one of the October Revolution. Not suited to compact soil or over-dry climates. They are wind resistant and effective planted alone or in a group. The plant is hardy at H6, making it perfect for the British climate. Only shelter in an extreme cold snap. It is prone to diseases and pests so keep an eye out on that.
