'Lavender Dream' (Interlay) Shrub. Another innovative rose from Peter Ilsink which has a special appeal. Aptly named and extremely attractive when in full flush of bloom. The growth habit is not tall but arching and spreading, flowers are small in size and are a deep lavender to pink in colour and they literally smother the plants in huge trusses when in full cry.

Colin Horner, What's New in the U.K.
There is one variety which I have deliberately left until last and which appeals to me more than any of the delights I have already mentioned. It gained a Trial Ground Certificate at St. Albans in 1985 and has recently been awarded the Gold Medal at Baden Baden. It really is a dream, 'Lavender Dream' (Interlav) a fragrant floribunda, each bush covered with large sprays of semi-double lavender blooms, a magnificent sight and a pure delight.

'Lavender Dream' INTERlav, a small-flowered Cluster Flower, by Interplant of Holland, with single lavender pink flowers reminiscent of a larger 'Yesterday'. It seems to be very healthy indeed and I found it attractive. Trial Ground Certificate.
