Fresh Flowers Responsibly Grown in California Since 1953

The Glad-A-Way Farm covers more than 550 acres in the rolling hills of the Santa Maria Valley in Northern Santa Barbara County. The ideal conditions of bright sun, clear skies, moderate temperatures, and cooler evenings support year-round propagation, planting, harvesting, and shipping. Combined with our decades of experience, this year-round availability makes our Gladiolus (“glads”) the number one choice of flower vendors nationwide.

All-American Bred & Grown

Glad-A-Way’s breeding and hybridization program continuously cultivates spectacular new varietals. Our glads are grown from our own bulbs, carefully selected to perform well in our year-round temperate climate.
By thoughtfully taking control of all aspects of growing and distribution, we are able to consistently maintain the highest level of quality. We are proud to be America’s only breeder, grower and shipper of premium gladiolas.

Flower Power Can Lift Your Spirit

Adding fresh-cut flowers in your home, or office adds more than just a pop of color, they can also greatly improve your indoor environment in a variety of surprising ways. Science has found that simply having a vase of flowers in your living, or workspace, can increase feelings of wellbeing, reduce anxiety and give you an increased sense of calm.

A Harvard study found that after a few days of having fresh-cut flowers in their home, participants felt “less negative”. Other benefits included feeling more compassionate towards others, as well as experiencing extra energy, happiness, and enthusiasm for work.
