Notice

Colin Mills, compiler of the Hortus Camdenensis, died in late November 2012 after a short illness. As he always considered the Hortus his legacy, it is his family's intention to keep the site running in perpetuity. It will not, however, be updated in the near future.

Theaceae

A family of some 16 genera and 200 species of tropical and sub-tropical trees and shrubs.  [RHSD].  The family includes one species of great economic importance, the tea bush, and a number of species of great ornamental value.  Camellia japonica is arguably the most important species in the history of Camden Park gardens.
