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.

Rosa ‘Bouquet de Flore’

Bourbon rose.  ‘Bouquet de Flore’ is a light, glossy carmine colour, the flowers large and double, cupped, sweet-scented and exquisite.  A hardy, vigorous and free-flowering rose with fine foliage.  An excellent autumnal bloomer and useful as a standard, pillar or for pots.  [Paul (1848, 1863, 1888), Rivers (1857, 1863), FC p.252/1850].
