I don't know about North Carolina, but Robert Osborne of Corn Hill 
Nursery in southern New Brunswick, who grows many hardy disease 
resistant roses, recommends two rugosas for hip production:

1. Dart's Dash

2. Fru Dagmar Hastrup

He no longer ships to the U.S., but Fru Dagmar Hastrup at least should 
be readily available.
