Bred by Colin Dickson (1956-....) (United Kingdom, 1999).
Introduced in United Kingdom by Dickson Nurseries Ltd. as 'Racy Lady'.
Hybrid Tea.  
White or white blend.  Strong fragrance.  40 petals.  Average diameter 4.5".  Large, full (26-40 petals), high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Height of 37" to 39" (95 to 100 cm).  
USDA zone 7b and warmer.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  Requires spring freeze protection (see glossary - Spring freeze protection) .  
The color of the blooms is creamy-white which deepens in the center to show a hint of peachy-lemon.

Racy Lady is one of the new varieties added to the RINZ Rose Display Trial at the Auckland Regional Botanic Gardens in 1999.
