what are the more commonly used root stock?

toffee1September 23, 2010

I brought a weeping Japanese maple with tiny red leaves 3 years ago. The tree didn't make it but guess what, after a few months, a green leave japanese maple came back. I believe it was the root stock of the original plant.

My question is what's the most commonly used root stock? What size it will grow to?

Thanks for helping.

A regular green JM is usually rootstock. up to 25ft.
