Anneke Calla Lily, also known as Zantedeschia 'Anneke', is a captivating variety of calla lily admired for its vibrant and richly colored flowers. Here's a description along with planting instructions:

Flowers: Anneke Calla Lily produces elegant, trumpet-shaped flowers characterized by their striking colors. The blooms are typically a vibrant shade of pink or coral, sometimes with delicate speckles or streaks of deeper hues. The flowers are borne atop tall, slender stems, adding elegance to any garden or floral arrangement.

Foliage: The foliage of Anneke Calla Lily consists of glossy, arrow-shaped leaves that complement the flowers beautifully. The leaves can vary in color from deep green to dark purple, adding further visual interest to the plant.

Height: These calla lilies typically grow to a height of around 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 cm), making them suitable for borders, containers, or as focal points in garden beds.

Blooming Period: Anneke Calla Lilies typically bloom from late spring to early summer, providing a burst of color during this time. With proper care, they can continue to bloom intermittently throughout the growing season.

Habitat: Anneke Calla Lilies thrive in moist, well-drained soil and prefer locations with partial to full sunlight. They can be grown in garden beds, borders, or containers, adding a touch of elegance to any outdoor space.

Planting Instructions:
Select a Location: Choose a sunny or partially shaded spot in your garden with well-drained soil. Avoid areas prone to waterlogging, as this can cause the rhizomes to rot.

Prepare the Soil: Before planting, prepare the soil by loosening it to a depth of about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm) and incorporating organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, to improve fertility and drainage.

Planting Depth: Plant the Anneke Calla Lily rhizomes (bulbs) approximately 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) deep in the soil, with the pointed end facing upward. Space multiple rhizomes about 12 inches (30 cm) apart to allow for adequate air circulation and room for growth.

Watering: After planting, water the rhizomes thoroughly to settle the soil and promote root establishment. Throughout the growing season, keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as shredded bark or compost, around the plants to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the base of the plants to prevent rotting.

Fertilization: Feed your Anneke Calla Lilies with a balanced fertilizer formulated for flowering plants once a month during the growing season. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and methods.

Maintenance: Remove spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and prevent the plant from expending energy on seed production. After the first frost in autumn, cut back the foliage and apply a layer of mulch to protect the rhizomes during winter.

By following these planting instructions and providing proper care, you can enjoy the vibrant beauty of Anneke Calla Lilies in your garden year after year.
