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 3 genera and some 17 species of herbs found from south east Europe to the Himalayas.  Sometimes included in the Dipsacaceae.  Represented in the Hortus by a single ornamental plant.
