I purchased this years ago when it first was published so don't know what the later editions are like.

The copy I have is interesting & informative & should be useful to all northern/cold climate rose gardeners. My only complaint is that not enough varieties are included!

The recommendations are very accurate for the roses that are listed; Osborne (of Corn Hill Nursery) knows his stuff.

Lovely photos.
