Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Will Scarlet is a vigorous grower which does exceptionally well as a climber to 12 feet. It can also be effective in the landscape as an open shrub that is as broad as it is tall. The semi-double, scarlet-red flowers are slightly scented and the color is accentuated by the presence of numerous yellow stamens. The graceful long canes and flowering habit produce a fine spring display. This is followed by an equally spectacular show in the fall, leaving clusters of round orange hips to mark the start of the winter season. If grown as a climber, this rose will reach 10 to 12 feet."
