Comments One might be forgiven for confusing Lavender Dream with Ballerina. Both roses are vigorous, shrubby, well branched and densely foliated. Both roses produce great sprays of small, single flowers in a pale pink that so densely cover the plant that the foliage is hard to see. Usually the pink in this rose, however, might have a touch of lilac. And Lavender Dream may also be a little more lax in habit. The plant will look especially good with purples such as Burgundy Iceberg and Angel Face. Sometimes what we see in dreams exaggerates what actually exists.
