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.


A family of 1 genus and some 18 species of climbing shrubs or herbs from tropical America.  [FNSW].  Represented in the Hortus by a single ornamental plant.
