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.

Hoya species unidentified [1]

Possibly an unidentified Australian species, perhaps one of several forms of Hoya australis R.Br. ex J.Traill, which see.  The date of accession is suggestive of an Australian species sent from Wide Bay by John Bidwill.
