Acer palmatum Ikandi is one of the most desired Japanese Maples for 2019. She is an upright, dwarf Japanese Maple with variegated pink-red stripes on the leaves in spring. A seedling from of Acer palmatum Alpenweiss, but with larger leaves and better color. In summer the foliage changes to green with pale white stripes. Fall color is gold to pink to scarlet. This maple prefers morning sun with shade in the afternoon. Estimated height in 10 years is 7′ tall by 4′ wide. Once established hardy to -10 degrees – USDA zone 6.
The name is pronounced ‘eye candy’ – and like any Japanese Maple some pruning is necessary to form the structure of the tree and to remove dead branches. Pruning is acceptable any time of the year, but spring before the leaves open is the best time to prune because it is easy to see the branches and overall structure of the maple. For more tips see Pruning Japanese Maples.
