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.

Passiflora hybrid no.2

‘No.2.  Much darker than Kermisina, a lot of purple carmine, lance shaped broader petals and better centre.’

History at Camden Park

William Macarthur’s notebook no.4, [MP vol. 52], contains descriptions of 6 hybrid passifloras, unnamed.  These possibly represent some of the named hybrids that subsequently appeared in the 1857 catalogue.
