Acer palmatum dissectum 'Nancy’s Legacy' Toyama Weeping Japanese Maple
‘Nancy’s Legacy’ leafs out the early spring as a bright pink. This weeping laceleaf is perhaps the pinkest spring color of all the weeping acer palmatum types. The leaves mature to a light green with bronze highlights. This summer bronze look gives this tree quite a striking appearance. In the fall, ‘Nancy’s Legacy’ turns to bright yellow, orange, then a brilliant scarlet red. Give ‘Nancy’s Legacy’ protection from the hot afternoon sun. ‘Nancy‘s Legacy’ may reach 3-4 ft in height by 5-6 ft in width in 10 years.
Nancy Fiers, one of the early pioneers of Japanese maples, loved the unvariegated form of ‘Toyama nishiki’, also known as ‘Toyama’. After her passing many began to call this tree ‘Nancy Ann’ and later it came ‘Nancy’s Legacy’.
