Rex Murfitt has died
« on: September 06, 2019, 12:41:12 PM »
From Frances Howey : " Rex Murfitt, who specialized in Saxifrages in troughs and, co-authored with Joyce Fingerut a fine book "Creating and Planting Garden Troughs, died on August 17 at the age of 91 in Prince George, B.C. I was fortunate to be one of many visitors to his garden in Victoria, B.C. and to meet him again at the NARGS Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh a few years ago. He will be missed."

Rex will be sadly missed. While  well-known for  his  interest  in  Saxifraga, Rex wrote  about  Zauschnerias in the  October  2010 issue  of the  International Rock Gardener  e-magazine    http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2010Nov271290899267October_IRG10_.pdf
