Comments To describe Will Scarlet at full bloom as a "riot of collor" is not far from the mark. The flowers can be quite bright - scarlet or a rich coral-rose. The color tends to be brighter in fall than in spring. The blossoms are semi-double and are borne in large, untidy clusters. The plant is large and untidy, too with rather bright green leaves. It's a vigorous plant, quite resistant to blackspot and not very affected by mildew. ARS members rate it 8.1.
