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 ‘Camdeni’

Camden-bred hybrid.  No description is extant.  It may be one of the hybrids originally numbered 1 to 10 in Macarthur’s notebook and described under these numbers.

Horticultural & Botanical History

No additional data.


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, including ‘Camdeni’, that subsequently appeared in the 1857 catalogue [T.719/1857].  The normal type generic name and italicised specific name of ‘Passiflora Camdeni’ as printed in the 1850 and 1857 catalogues is strongly indicative of a Camden Park hybrid.
