I BOUGHT A NATIVE RED MAPLE IN EARLY SPRING OF THIS YEAR. IT HAS BEEN WELL TAKEN CARE OF BUT IT IS NOT TURNING IT'S FALL COLOR. I HAVE OCTOBER GLORYS AND SUGAR MAPLES THAT HAVE ALREADY TURN. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?????

just hold tight, my red maple didn't turn until early November last year.

If your red maple is a seedling, then it won't necessarily turn red in the fall. Many seedling red maples, like the 20 year old tree in my yard, always turn yellow. You need a grafted, named variety for red/orange color, like October Glory, etc.
