Hartland painted flowers, mainly daffodils. Her uncle, William Baylor Hartland, was a well-known plantsman who specialised in daffodils. He produced a unique catalogue, the Special Jubilee Catalogue, and for the 1897 edition it used her engraved portraits of daffodils. The engraving was done by W.J. Welch. She had a deep love for the countryside


Gertrude Hartland was also a very accomplished landscape painter, especially the Wicklow mountains.
