The flowers of this variety are crimson scarlet, high centred and fairly large, with about 30 wide petals, and open rather loosely on very tall stems.
They are often carried in open clusters, and the overall effect is more like a big shrub than a large flowered bush.
Flowers well and the continuity of bloom is maintained through summer and autumn.
'Uncle Walter' needs carefully placing or it will dominate its neighbours; towards the back of a border is a suitable place, or it could be treated as a short climber and grown on a support.
It grows very vigorously with a tall, free branching habit to well above average height.
The leaves are large, crimson when young, then maturing to bronze green, and plentiful.
A very healthy rose with a pleasant perfume.
