The Flame Calla Lily, also known as Zantedeschia 'Flame', is a stunning variety of calla lily renowned for its vibrant, fiery-colored flowers and lush foliage. Below is a description along with planting instructions for this captivating plant:

Flowers: The Flame Calla Lily produces striking trumpet-shaped flowers in vivid shades of orange, red, or yellow, resembling flames hence its name. The blooms are eye-catching and add a bold splash of color to any garden or floral arrangement.

Foliage: The foliage of the Flame Calla Lily consists of broad, glossy, arrow-shaped leaves that provide an attractive backdrop to the vibrant flowers. The leaves are typically a rich shade of green, enhancing the overall visual appeal of the plant.

Height: These calla lilies typically reach a height of around 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 cm), creating a stunning focal point in garden beds, borders, or containers.

Blooming Period: Flame Calla Lilies usually bloom from late spring to early summer, with flowers persisting for several weeks under favorable conditions. With proper care, they can continue to produce sporadic blooms throughout the growing season.

Habitat: Flame Calla Lilies thrive in moist, well-drained soil and prefer locations with partial to full sunlight. They are well-suited for planting in garden beds, borders, containers, or along pond edges, adding a touch of drama and elegance to any landscape.

Planting Instructions:
Select a Location: Choose a sunny or partially shaded area in your garden with well-drained soil. Avoid sites prone to waterlogging, as excessive moisture can lead to rhizome rot.

Soil Preparation: 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 enhance soil fertility and drainage.

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

Watering: Water the newly planted rhizomes thoroughly to settle the soil and facilitate root establishment. During the growing season, maintain consistently moist soil, watering deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

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. Leave a gap between the mulch and the base of the plants to prevent rotting.

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

Maintenance: Remove spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and prevent seed formation. 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 Flame Calla Lilies in your garden, adding a touch of warmth and allure to your outdoor space.
