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 major [Macarthur]

An unidentified plant, I have found no species, hybrid or cultivar listed under this name. Probably a form of one of the commoner species already described.
