Long time contributor to this forum Rich Dufrense has died. His knowledge of and passion for salvias was incredible and I for one will sorely miss him. http://blog.plantdelights.com/the-salvia-doctor-has-left-the-greenhouse/

    Still trying to wrap my head around this. I'm glad Tony Avent is preserving his website in his memory.

    Wow! me too, Karen. I learned so much from him over the years.

    Ralph, thank you for letting us know about his death. He will be sorely missed by many.

    Terribly sad to lose such invaluable experience and deep knowledge...but fortunately, thanks to Rich's generosity, much of this knowledge will be preserved through later generations of gardeners who have eagerly swapped tips, shared enthusiasm and carried a love of salvias onward.
