Only Breck's offers this one-of-a-kind plant.
We're thrilled to be the exclusive seller in the U.S. and Canada of this transcendent, new calla lily! Frozen Queen will enchant you even before its wine-red blooms begin opening. The unique hues and shapes of the variegated foliage are, in a word, breathtaking. Translucent, silvery-white leaves irregularly outlined in green brush strokes elegantly twist and curve as they climb skyward. The upright, trumpet-shaped flowers, which are 10 cm in length and 5–7 cm in diameter, arrive in midsummer displaying the colour of a good Bordeaux to add gorgeous contrast. This versatile beauty is equally at home outside in the garden and indoors as a houseplant. Outdoors, it deserves a spot in the front row where it can be admired, such as in a border or patio pot. In areas with hot, humid summers, we recommend planting this calla lily where it will get at least some shade and avoid being in direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day.Zantedeschia

Frozen Queen Makes an Excellent Houseplant

new calla lily

Not only can this special calla lily add tremendous colour and form outside your home, it's also fantastic to grow indoors, beautifying any room it occupies! Potted plants should be placed near a window, but avoid placing them directly in the hot midday sun because this could burn the leaves. We suggest proximity to an East-facing window, where they will get morning sun, or a Western window that lets in late-afternoon sunshine. Plants perform best at temperatures of 65-75°F.

Use any regular potting soil, keeping it humid but making sure no standing water gathers inside the pot. In fall, when the growing season is over, allow Frozen Queen to go dormant. Discontinue watering, let the foliage die off and then move your plants to a dark area. Store them for two to three months at 40-50°F, then it will be time to restart the growth cycle. Consider repotting bulbs in fresh soil.

In Most Places, Dig Up the Bulbs in Fall
Your Frozen Queen bulbs will be delivered in spring. If growing them outdoors, they should be planted as soon as the risk of frost has passed. Bulbs can safely be left in the ground all year in hardiness zones 9-10, as well as in zone 8 when the ground is covered with a heavy mulch. In cooler climates, lift bulbs in fall after the foliage yellows. Store them in a dark place at a constant temperature of 40-50°F until replanting the following spring.

About the Hybridizer

From an early age, Bram Breugem knew he wanted to follow in his father's footsteps and become a grower. When Bram was 21, he started working at his dad's nursery business in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands. He began small-scale testing of calla lilies in the 1990s after noticing an uptick in the plant's popularity. In 2000, he began forcing callas in his greenhouse on a larger scale while performing some breeding of the plants on the side as a hobby.

About a decade into his testing, Bram noticed a spectacular, one-of-a-kind calla lily growing among his seedlings. He'd never seen anything quite like its translucent, silvery-white leaves, which differed greatly in appearance from the rich, deep green foliage found on all other callas. He knew that plants with little chlorophyll--the natural compound in green plants that gives them their colour--tend to perform weakly, but he was so taken by this calla's singular beauty that he couldn't bring himself to give up on it. Against all odds, it started growing and producing gorgeous, wine-red blooms--and Frozen Queen was born!

During the ensuing years, Bram continued testing his discovery. He determined that it grew well in the field, propagated efficiently and was an excellent garden performer. When he presented Frozen Queen to others in the horticulture industry, his peers expressed little interest. Many said it looked strange, an adjective often used when a game-changing plant is introduced. But Bram wasn't discouraged. He took his new calla lily to a public flower show in Holland, and it received an entirely different reaction. People there fell in love with Frozen Queen's "strange" beauty and even lined up to take pictures with it!
