I love rosehips but have been disappointed so far trying to produce them
here in NC.

I planted a Rosa rugosa var: dwarf pavement  for rose hips.  I had good
production the first year of mediocre fruit, then the plant started
getting foliage problems and the rose hips would mummify instead of
developing normally. I am about to remove the plant.

Is there any disease resistant, low care rose someone would recommend
for tasty rosehip production in the humid southeast?
