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 about 22 genera and 350 species of herbs, shrubs, trees and woody climbers, mainly from tropical and sub-tropical regions.  [FNSW].  Represented in the Hortus by a single ornamental climber.
