    Frequently Asked Questions

    The ideal time to plant Calla Lily Anneke is in the spring, after the risk of frost has passed. This allows the plant ample time to establish itself and produce vigorous growth before the blooming season.

    In warmer climates (USDA hardiness zones 7-10), calla lilies can be planted earlier in the season or left in the ground year-round. In colder regions, it is best to start your Anneke indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost and transplant them outside once temperatures have warmed.

    Yes, you can grow Calla Lily Anneke in a container, making it an excellent choice for those with limited garden space or who want to add a touch of tropical flair to their patio or balcony. Choose a large container with drainage holes to accommodate the plant's size and ensure proper moisture levels.

    Use a high-quality potting mix with good drainage, and add slow-release fertilizer to provide nutrients throughout the growing season. Keep the soil consistently moist and provide ample sunlight for the best growth. In colder climates, bring the container indoors during the winter months to protect the rhizomes from freezing temperatures.

    Propagating Canna Lily Anneke is typically done through the division of its rhizomes. In late winter or early spring, carefully dig up the rhizomes, being cautious not to damage them. Using a clean, sharp knife, divide the rhizomes into sections, ensuring that each piece has at least one healthy eye or growth point.

    Allow the cut surfaces to dry for a few hours to reduce the risk of infection. Then, plant the divided rhizomes 4-6 inches deep and 1-2 feet apart in well-draining, organically enriched soil. Water regularly to maintain consistent moisture, and provide ample sunlight to encourage healthy growth and flowering.

    Calla Lily Anneke is a medium-sized calla lily, with a mature height of 3-4 feet (90-120 cm) and a spread of 1.5-2 feet (45-60 cm). The striking purple-red flowers, combined with its lush, green foliage, make Anneke an eye-catching addition to any garden, particularly when planted in groups or combined with other tall perennials.

    To maintain a healthy and well-shaped plant, regular pruning and removal of spent flowers is recommended.

    Calla Lily Anneke typically begins blooming in mid to late summer and will continue to produce its stunning flowers until the first frost. The bloom time may vary depending on the climate and growing conditions. In warmer regions, the flowering season may start earlier and last longer.

    Anneke is frost-hardy in USDA hardiness zones 8-10. This means that within these zones, you can plant Anneke earlier and it will bloom earlier. You can even leave it year-round in the ground. If you live in colder climates, you must wait with planting until the frost has passed. This is why Anneke will bloom later than in warmer regions. But in both regions, Anneke will bloom all the way till the fall.

    To encourage continuous blooming, deadhead spent flowers and remove yellowing leaves. This will allow the plant to focus its energy on producing new blooms, extending the flowering season.
