CONTENTMENT, 1957        Rarest & Web-Only
With misty, shimmering, soft lavender-pink petals, ‘Contentment’ is hauntingly beautiful. Lightly ruffled and strong-growing, it was once the world’s leading lavender glad, but today it’s all but lost. 4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care.
Limit 3, please.
DAUNTLESS, 1940        Rarest
You’ll never mistake ‘Dauntless’ for a modern supermarket glad. We call it the Lauren Bacall of glads because its smooth, stylish, angular blooms recall an era of wide lapels and big, sexy hats. Pink with a dramatic splash of ruby in the throat, it’s also one of the oldest surviving traditional glads. 4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care.
SGL-12 3/$8.50 5/$13.50 SOLD OUT
G. nanus ELVIRA, 1956        Web-Only
Small-flowered and informal, ‘Elvira’ is a perky soft pink with its lower petals splashed with ruby. It’s one of the Nanus group of petite, early-blooming, hardier-than-most glads, and perfect for summer’s simple, no-fuss bouquets. 2-3 feet, from Holland. Chart and care.
FIDELIO, 1959        Web-Only
A very rosy, joyful purple, ‘Fidelio’ is named for Beethoven’s only opera, a hymn to loyalty, love, and freedom. Try a few combined with silvery Russian sage or tall artemisia – stunning!
4 feet, from Holland. Chart and care.
GREEN LACE, 1961        Rarest
No matter how hard we try, we can never seem to capture the soft, juicy spring green of this small-flowered glad in a photo – so you’re just going to have to grow it yourself to see how wonderful it is. Daintily ruffled and cute as a button, it always draws ooos and ahhs in the garden and makes every bouquet more interesting. 3-4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care.
SGL-47 3/$12 5/$19 SOLD OUT
KAKAGA, 1962        Rarest & Web-Only
Yoda’s favorite glad? With its flaring side petals, this exotic little glad may at least remind you of that big-eared Jedi master. A bit larger than ‘Atom’, it’s a brilliant paprika-orange splashed with gold and absolutely dazzling. As for its name, if you know what it means, we’d love to hear from you. Small-flowered, 3-4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care. With luck our grower may offer us more bulbs this season. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
SGL-56 1/$7.50 3/$20.50 SOLD OUT
LILAC & CHARTREUSE, 1960        Rarest & Web-Only
From the decade that brought us paisley shirts, black-light posters, and Sergeant Pepper comes this weirdly wonderful glad of ruffled, lavender florets splashed with pale chartreuse. And you don’t have to be a hippie to enjoy it! 3-4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care. With luck our grower may offer us more bulbs this season. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
SGL-46 1/$6.50 3/$18 SOLD OUT
LUCKY STAR, 1966        Rarest & Web-Only
Fragrance in glads is as rare as hen’s teeth. Although a few wild ones have it, breeding it into modern glads has proved difficult. In fact, ‘Lucky Star’ was the only fragrant seedling to come from many years of crosses made by New Zealander Joan Wright using garden glads and the even more fragrant Abyssinian glad. Its bold, angular good looks are a bonus, and night-flying hawk moths love it. 4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care.
Limit 5, please.
NOVA LUX, 1965        
Bright yet soft, the lemon yellow color of this full-sized glad is just right, carrying across the garden and lighting up bouquets. We’re fans of its classic, triangular shape, too, and the old-fashioned smoothness of its barely rippled petals. 4 feet, from a third-generation family farm in Michigan. Chart and care.
PETER PEARS, 1958        
On sale now! Named for a honey-voiced English tenor and pronounced “Peers”, this warm, summery flower is a harmonious orange blending to a golden throat (get it?) with a splash of strawberry. Excellent for adding some color or a little height to any garden. 4’, from Michigan. Chart and care.
