Rogers Roses site is shut down...

I don't know how many of you enjoyed and used rogersroses.com. I always found it a wonderful and useful reference as it organized all the species by class, and had a great deal of information on species from Martin Rix that, for instance, HMF lacked.

I just went there to do some species research and learned that it was closed as of March 31.

I'm very disappointed, and wondered the reason. It was a free site, and clearly generated no revenue whatsoever. No ads. Just good information and photographs from Roger Phillips. The rights to photos were offered for sale, but I suspect more often than not just pilfered, as too often occurs online.

I'm sad to lose this reference, however.
