    Just got a short e-mail from Karen Edge, Perry's wife, that Perry passed away Friday morning at home. I talked with him earlier in the day and he was talking about going into the hospital.
    Ave atque vale my friend.
    A memorial and celebration of life will be at a later time. Will keep you posted.

    So sorry to hear of Perry’s passing. I had just taken a picture of Perry’s croton “Karen Edge” in the Keys this weekend to show him at Ana’s next weekend. It was one that survived Irma. Perry was a good croton friend and will be missed by this croton family!

    I was selling crotons at the Ramble at Fairchild this weekend and that's where Jose shared the sad news with me. I first met Perry years ago when we were both selling crotons through the Croton Society at the Ramble. It's when I got my first Helen Edge which he called Better than Petra at the time. Our condolences to the family.

    Here's a picture of him from 2015 - the one in the foreground with the beard.

    I must have been having a senior moment this morning... Perry originally called 'Helen Edge ' 'Beyond Petra'.
