    About Flame

    Calla Flame is the perfect addition to your garden, also known as Calla Lilies. The Calla Flame's blossoms open yellow with a red edge, but as they mature, you’ll get a glowing, flame-red flower.

    • Vibrant orange-red flowers that bloom in spring and summer
    • Low-maintenance plant that thrives in moist, well-drained soil
    • Great for borders, pots, or as a cut flower
    • Can reach a height of up to 20 inches
    • They make a fantastic cut bouquet
    • Mostly found by lakes in moist soils
    • Flowers from June till August, if provided with sun

    How to care for Flame

    • First, choose a well-draining soil mix with a pH level between 6.0-6.5. 
    • Plant the rhizomes 3-4 inches deep and 12-18 inches apart in a sunny or partially shaded location, ideally receiving 6 hours of sunlight daily. 
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but avoid over-watering, as this can lead to root rot. 
    • Fertilize monthly with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season. 
    • In colder climates, dig up the rhizomes and store them in a cool, dry place during winter. 
    • Provide adequate support to prevent the tall flower stems from toppling over 
    • Deadhead spent blooms to encourage further flowering.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Calla Lily Flame can be successfully grown indoors with proper care. Place the plant in a well-lit area with indirect sunlight, ideally receiving 6 hours of light daily. Use a well-draining soil mix and a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. Maintain consistent moisture in the soil, but be cautious not to over-water.

    Fertilize the plant monthly during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Provide support for the tall flower stems to prevent them from toppling over. Keep in mind that Calla Lily Flame plants are toxic, so position the plant in a location that is inaccessible to children and pets.

    Calla Lily Flame 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.

    Flame 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 Flame will bloom later than in warmer regions. But in both regions Flame 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.

    To plant Calla Lily Flame in the ground, start by choosing a location with well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade exposure. Prepare the soil by loosening it and working in organic matter or compost to improve drainage and fertility.

    Maintain a pH level of 6.0 to 6.5 for optimal growth. Dig holes 3-4 inches deep and space them 12-18 inches apart. Place the rhizomes in the holes with the growing points or "eyes" facing upwards. Cover the rhizomes with soil, and water thoroughly to help settle the soil around them. Keep the soil consistently moist throughout the growing season.

    Calla Lily Flame can come back each year, but this depends on the climate in your area. In USDA hardiness zones 8-10, where winters are mild, the rhizomes can stay in the ground and will re-emerge the following spring. Make sure to add an extra layer of mulch in the colder months.

    However, in colder climates (zones 7 and below), the rhizomes need to be dug up and stored indoors during winter to prevent freezing and rot. After the foliage dies back in the fall, carefully remove the rhizomes from the ground, clean off excess soil, and allow them to dry for a few days. Store the rhizomes in a slightly cool (45-50 degrees Fahrenheit), dark, and well-ventilated area until spring, when they can be replanted.
