G. nanus ELVIRA, 1956        
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.

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, care, and learn more. Last offered spring of 2018. We plan to offer this variety again next spring. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
KAKAGA, 1962        
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. Last offered spring of 2018. We hope to offer this variety again next spring.

LILAC & CHARTREUSE, 1960        
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. Last offered spring of 2018. We plan to offer this variety again next spring.

LUCKY STAR, 1966        Rarest
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, care, and learn more. Last offered spring of 2018. We plan to offer this variety again next spring. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
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        
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.

PRISCILLA, 1977        
We’ve never offered a bulb from the 1970s before, but when eight of our Maine-grown glads were lost to a brutally hot, dry summer, and two of our Dutch-grown heirlooms went commercially extinct, we knew it was time for ‘Priscilla’. White with ruffled, bright rose petal edges and a lemon-yellow throat, this is not only a gorgeous glad, it’s an unusually hardy and enduring glad – and an heirloom of the future! 4-5 feet, from Michigan. Chart and care.

SNOW PRINCESS, 1939        Rarest
Now that ‘White Friendship’ and ‘White Goddess’ have gone commercially extinct, we’re happier than ever to have this snowy-white Depression-era beauty with its intriguing pink anthers. One of the oldest traditional glads we’ve ever offered, it was a florists’ favorite for decades and long praised as “sturdy,” “stately,” and “exquisite.” 4½ feet tall, from Maine. Chart and care. Last offered spring of 2018. We hope to offer this variety again next spring. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
