The 40th anniversary edition marks the first major revision of this gardeners' bible since 1967. As before, the guide provides an excellent thematically-organized guide to plant selection and a hefty plant encyclopedia. Changes include new color photographs, a practical gardening dictionary and index consolidating previously scattered information, and superb new maps and descriptions of the West's climate zones.
