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.

Nerium oleander ‘Spectabile’

Presumably a cultivar of Nerium oleander L. I have found no specific description of this variety but it was presumably ‘spectabilis’, somewhat remarkable in appearance. See Nerium oleander ‘Albo Pleno’ for more information on this plant.
