(review for original edition; still applies -->) Fantastic! HUGE help in the flower garden. I don't usually like to mark up books, but I have heavily marked this one and refer to it constantly.

As for the 2017 edition specifically: The first half of the book is essentially unchanged; I was surprised to still see such frequent references to Sedum "Autumn Joy" specifically, as if no other sedums exist, and that seemed to date the book to me. But she may have felt that no changes were necessary to that content.

As for the "plant encyclopedia" section, it is now well-illustrated with photos, which is very nice. More importantly, additional perennials have been added; a few have dropped out (variegated bishop's weed didn't make the grade this time!) Within each entry, most often there have been few or no changes, but sometimes newer varieties are suggested.

If you have one of the two earlier editions of the book, I'd say this updated version is not a must-have, but neither did the author simply slap a new cover on the old book, change the photos, and call it brand new. My advice, if you think you might be interested, would be to look at this book locally so you can examine it for yourself and see if the differences merit the purchase or not.

It's just too much, it's not up to date with current best practices, and I'm not happy to see that invasives are included in her own garden (porcelain berry vine) and in her plans. This author's other book on taking care of perennials is truly my garden bible, but this one is just not for me.
