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 ‘Joasine Hanet’

Although most modern authors regard ‘Joasine Hanet’ as a Damask Perpetual rose, Paul, in the first edition of The Rose Garden, places it in a group with an affinity for the ‘Rose de Trianon’.  See Rosa ‘Sydonie’ for details.  [Paul 1848].  The flowers are of medium size, full, purple-red in colour, borne in clusters.  [Paul 1848].
