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 some 10 genera and 120 species of herbs, shrubs and a few trees, mainly from the warmer regions of the Americas.  [RHSD and others].  Sometimes placed in the Passifloraceae.  Represented in the Hortus by a single ornamental sub-shrub.
