    Plants of Hawaii is an updated version of a book published in 1971 and long out of print. This book fills a niche for the Hawaiian gardener providing time tested advice on plants grown in Hawaii written by a local authority on Hawaiian gardening. This new addition includes a couple of sections on popular plants like hibiscus that were missing in the original. Some sections have been updated with current horticultural practices and issues that have been introduced since the original publishing. For example the papaya section has been updated with a discussion on ringspot virus and GMO varieties that are resistant. Discussion of pest control is updated and less toxic than the advice in the original version. The recommended reading list is up to date with references as late as 2012 and the resource section lists state phone numbers and websites for CTAHR and state dept of agriculture.This book is Hawaiian product, with local expertise and is published in Hilo. It is not a glossy Sunset gardening book, put together by west coast editors about places they have never gardened. Rather it is a small reference book capturing a 25 year career of local gardening advice that has been updated with local advice from current Hawaiian garden experts. It would have earned the fifth star if petroglyph press and used all color pictures and put all the color pictures with the plants section - having color plates in the center of the of the book is too old school for my taste.
