Anton,  I have seen a rose here that I'm pretty sure was Sarah Van Fleet, 
and it was pretty impressive looking.  However, Rugosas don't like our clay 
soil, and I'm not interested in growing them, seeing as I make my living as 
a massage therapist.  Even my thorniest varieties, the kordesii roses have 
spaces between the thorns.  I know someone who has rugosas that do well, and 
they look good no matter what, even with Jap beetles all over them till you 
get up really close.    Dona
