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.

Narcissus varieties unidentified

Undescribed varieties but no doubt including some of more than 100 named tazettiforms mentioned by Baker.  [Baker Am.].  A large number of tazettiforms, in a range of colours, are naturalised at Camden Park today and probably include some of the varieties included here. The illustration shows a selection of tazettiforms naturalised on Blarney Bank at Camden Park. The segments range from white to deep yellow and the coronas from the palest cream to orange. A pure white Narcissus papyraceus is seen at bottom right.
