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.

Paeonia fimbriata Hort.Angl. ex Sabine

Probably the same plant as ‘Paeonia paradoxa fimbriata’ of the catalogues.  See Paeonia officinalis L. ssp. villosa (Huth.) Cullen & Heyw. for details.
