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.

A cultivar of Sinningia speciosa (Lodd.) Hiern. It is not listed under this name in the main Gesneriad Register – Sinningia, or in the Appendix.  I have found no description for this plant.
