Editorial Reviews

Review

“Serious gardeners might get downright excited about this book, which bills itself as an almanac for planning and planting ... If you’re planning to put in a new perennial garden or want to reach the holy grail of gardening – season-long color – you might want to pick up a copy.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune )

“Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of color photographs…[t]his one’s an indispensable tool for the home gardener and nursery, design, and landscape professionals.”

(Detroit News )

“Tomasz Aniśko has written a book that is destined to become a perennial itself, for it unlocks in a practical way one of the hardest aspects of garden design: figuring out which perennials bloom when, exactly.”

(Washington Post )

“Gardeners will appreciate the sections that detail blooming patterns, especially in Longwood Gardens and gardens in Chicago and St. Louis, and several foreign gardens as well. This is a wonderful book for winter planning.”

(Choice )

"Books providing detailed, first-hand information about perennials are a rare treat for the serious gardener, and this one does so generously."

(Gardens Illustrated )

"With this book you're sure to have a garden in bloom from spring to fall." (Garden Gate )

"When Perennials Bloom by Tomasz Anisko is a great resource for figuring out which plants will bloom together."

(Stephanie Bruner Des Moines Register )

I bought this for my husband, a dedicated gardener. He volunteers for eight hours, once a week (as a gardener, digging in the dirt), at Longwood Gardens, where the author is on the staff.
My husband loves the book and already it has become one of his favorite references when he is thinking about new plants to add to our own garden. It's a beautiful book, highly recommended for amateur or professional gardeners who want to ensure a continuous array of color throughout the growing season in the Mid-Atlantic area.

I live in the midwest which is zone 4, I contacted the University of MN to get some idea how to convert. I was told that for spring bloomers I should add about a month but that summers should be okay as shown in the book - of course all depending on weather each year, average temps, etc.

I really like this book.

This book has wonderful information about Perennials and explores beautiful flowers. This book has dedicated around 428 pages out of the 482 pages (plus index pgs that equal out to 512 pgs that is listed in the Product Detail here on Amazon). It gives a lot of superb information into this book. The vibrant colors of the flowers make this book a one to buy.

This beautiful book is simply useless if you live in the South. I had better luck reading Elizabeth Lawrence's 50 year old record of when her flowers bloomed. Too bad there is not a "When Perennials Bloom in the South" edition.
