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.

Phlox 'Leantii'

Probably a phlox hybrid.  The hand-writing is somewhat indistinct but it is included with the then recently introduced hybrids Van Houttii and Wheeleri.  I have found no description.

Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.

History at Camden Park

Included in hand-written lists in a copy of the 1840 catalogue held at the Mitchell Library, inscribed on the front Wm. Macarthur, 23rd Dec 1854.  [ML 635.9m].  Certainly grown in the gardens at this time.
