Breeder's notes:
Phototropic Exhibition Hybrid Tea, very vigorous plant with dark green foliage. Easy to grow and excellent for the garden or exhibition. This rose has pink tipped petals in the bud stage that turn snow white in exhibition form. Very hardy but still requires winter protection in feezing climates.

Delicate Lady is available nationwide at selected nurseries and garden centers, including Wal-Marts, and Targets. It is also be available at Lowes but only on the west coast.
Delicate Lady was introduced in 2004
