I was at the florist yesterday and discovered my newfound obsession with glads too! Yes, you can submerge them! She said they’re a lot sturdier than orchids (and better on the budget!).  I was looking for something that would stick out of the centerpieces as an alternative to twigs/bells of ireland/beargrass.  She said because glads are so sturdy, they won’t wilt much.  For the same reason, they can be submerged, but be careful, since they are pretty strong, you won’t get that curved effect you might get with other vines in the glass, but I love them in the water!

YES U CAN! Excatly 5 mins ago I completed a test run of my centerpiece of glads! they were indeed sticking out of the top and you know I’m digging it! My colors are chocolate browns, brunt oranges and touches of greens and gold. So I used the purple and a yellowish-orange color glad. I got them from Dominick’s(grocery store in the city of chicago). they were 10 stems for 4$. came out beautifully.

My florist recommended these for our submerged centerpieces. Good luck with yours!
