California Grown Gladiolus since 1953

The Glad-A-Way Farm covers more than 550 acres in the rolling hills of the Santa Maria Valley of California’s acclaimed central coast.

Ideal conditions of bright sun, clear skies, moderate temperatures with cool evenings support year-round propagation, planting, harvesting, and shipping.

Decades of experience and superior quality make our glads the number one choice of flower vendors nationwide.

All-American Bred & Grown

Our breeding program and in-house bulb cultivation process consistently offers a spectacular assortment of outstanding varieties.  Our glads are grown from our own bulbs, carefully selected to perform in our unique temperate climate. 

With the Glad-A-Way team controlling all aspects of growing and distribution, we are able to reliably maintain the highest level of quality and service.  We are proud to be America’s only breeder, grower, and shipper of premium gladiolas.

🎉 Celebrating 🎉 70 years of Excellence and #NationalGladiolusMonth…

The gladiolus flower is known for representing strength of character, honesty, generosity, and moral integrity.

Those born in August are strong, independent, and fierce people!

As they also symbolize infatuation and remembrance, they`re the 40th-anniversary flower too.

🎉Celebrating 🎉 70 years of Excellence…

In 1996, Glad-A-Way moved the bulb production from Northern California to the Central Coast, and began growing glads at the new location in 1998. Everything is grown on site at
Glad-A-Way, from the bulbs to the cut flowers. We are proudly growing over 40 varieties and are continually
cultivating new spectacular assortments!

🎉Celebrating🎉 70 years of Excellence…

Our farm was founded by John Canine, with his sons Neil & Jean. The boys got their start in the family business in the 1930`s planting gladiolus bulbs for $.10 an hour. In the early days, customers referred to buying the fresh cut flowers as traveling "a ways" to get some glads, and so the name "Glad-A-Way" was born.

We are overjoyed to be celebrating 70 years in business this August in conjunction with #NationalGladiolusMonth! 🎉

Glad-A-Way Gardens began back in 1953 as a small 2 acre gladiolus farm selling flowers from a roadside stand in Northern California. Today, our farm covers more than 550 acres in the Santa Maria Valley!

Stay tuned for more stories as we celebrate 70 years of excellence!
