Here you’ll find our VERY rarest bulbs along with late finds and others we simply couldn’t squeeze into our print catalog.

Those marked “Web-Only & Rarest” are sometimes in such short supply that they sell out within days — and some years we can’t offer them at all — so if you see one you like, we recommend you order it now!

CAROLINA PRIMROSE, 1908        Web-Only
This small, graceful glad stunned us by surviving 22° below zero one winter here. Reliably perennial in zones 6a-9b(11aWC) – and in much of zone 5, our customers tell us – it multiplies year after year without care, and grows true from seed. Collected at an old homesite in NC, it’s an early form of the “Maid of the Mist” glad (G. primulinus, now lumped into G. dalenii, first offered in the US by Thorburn in 1908), a kissing cousin of the equally wonderful ‘Boone’.
3 feet, from Michigan. Chart and care.

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.

WIG’S SENSATION, 1965        Web-Only
To tell the truth, we didn’t think we’d like this big red glad with the clunky name. But a farmer friend gave us a big bouquet of it and (a) it was so beautiful we found ourselves staring at it whenever we walked by and (b) it lasted and lasted in the vase, longer than any other glad we've ever grown. So here it is – enjoy! 4 feet, from Holland. Chart and care.
