'Nancy Orne', Sturtevant,1921 [(Caterina)x(Mrs.George Darwin)] TB, M, Bi-Color, Historic, 42 in. tall. Almost identical to Mme.Cheri and Alcazar, it is destinguished from them by its rosier and lighter pink overtones and color. Alcazar being much darker purple falls and Mme.Cheri only slightly darker and slightly less pink in overtones than Nancy Orne.
