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 ‘Celina Dubos’

Classified by Rivers as a Perpetual Damask rose and as a Portland rose by Les Plus Belles Roses au début du XXe Siécle.  ‘Celina Dubos’ is a white, or nearly white rose, said to have originated from a sporting branch of the Crimson Perpetual and of similar habit to this old favourite.  [Rivers (1854, 1857, (1863), Amat].
