Philip Miller (1691 London18. detsember 1771 Chelsea, London) oli šoti päritolu inglise aednik ja botaanik. Tema botaaniline autorilühend on Mill..

Ta oli Londonis asuva Chelsea Physic Gardeni peaaednik 1722. aastast alates. Miller oli kirjavahetuses paljude botaanikutega ja kogus taimi üle maailma. Ta oli paljude taimede esmakasvataja Inglismaal ja üks riigi parimaid taimetundjaid. 1730 valiti ta Londoni Kuningliku Seltsi liikmeks.

1733. aastal saatis ta esimesed puuvillapõõsa seemned Ameerikasse Georgiasse.

Miller oli kaua vastu Carl von Linné binaarsele nomenklatuurile ning eelistas Joseph Pitton de Tourneforti ja John Ray klassifikatsioonisüsteemi. Alles 1768. aastal ilmunud "Aedniku sõnaraamatu" 8. trükis võttis ta Linné süsteemi üle.
