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!

BIBI, 1954Rarest & Web-Only

Exotically patterned in a style that dates back to Victorian days, this small-flowered, vibrant pink glad is randomly flecked with rose, recalling batiked sarongs, the psychedelic 1960s, and – to quote the imaginative young son of one of our customers – “pink cheetahs.” 3-4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care. 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.

CHIPPER, 1965Rarest & Web-Only

If this little glad were any bigger, its brilliant splashes of deep rose on white might be too much. But it’s one of the smallest-flowered glads we grow, and we never seem to get tired of its cheery brightness. Try it yourself and see what we mean! 3 feet tall, from Maine. Chart and care. 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.

CONTENTMENT, 1957Rarest & 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. We hope to offer this variety again next spring.

LILAC & CHARTREUSE, 1960Rarest & 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. We hope to offer this variety again next spring.

SNOW PRINCESS, 1939Rarest & Web-Only

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. 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.

SPRING MAID, 1961Rarest & Web-Only

As dewy fresh as spring itself, and very early blooming, this small-to-medium flowered, lightly ruffled glad is a soft, almost silvery yellow. Combine it with pink roses, blue salvia, and a hosta leaf or two for a cool, refreshing summer bouquet. 3-4 feet, from Maine. Chart and care. We hope to offer this variety again next spring.

SUNSET SKY, 1965Rarest & Web-Only
