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 ‘Enfant de Mont Carmel’

Hybrid Perpetual.  Paul describes the flowers as crimson, large and full, growth vigorous.  According to Thomas Rivers, writing in The Gardeners’ Chronicle, this rose does not always open well.  [Paul 1863, Gard. Chron. 1857].
