Lavender Dream was removed from the Auckland Regional Botanic Gardens (ARBG) Display Trial because its trial period expired.
In Southern California, this rose can achieve easily 8-ft. in height, and a good 10-ft in width.
In Southern California, whether deadheaded or not, it repeats continuously right into winter, when it can produce a generous crop of small current-like red hips.
