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.

Fuchsia ‘Stormentii’

‘A fuchsia, called Stormentii, from France, was very handsome.’  [The Magazine of Horticulture, Botany, and all useful Discoveries and Improvements in Rural Affairs vol.XII, p.202/1846].  I have found no description of this cultivar.
