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 ‘Alato-kermesina’

Presumably a Passiflora alata C.Curtis x Passiflora raddiana DC. hybrid.  I have found no description of this plant.


Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.


History at Camden Park

It was probably bred at Camden but it may have been sent as seed from Tahiti by Bidwill and raised by Macarthur.  A plant was presented to the Sydney Botanic Gardens by William Macarthur on 15th September 1847 [RBGS AB].
