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.

Classified as a Hybrid Chinese by Paul who considered it to be a fine rose.  It has globular flowers, reddish crimson in colour, the edges of the petals inclined to lilac, and vigorous growth.  [Paul (1848, 1863)].
