Personal communications indicate that dwarfing root-stocks found so far, dwarf some varieties well, and others not at all.

Bovine421  Is it know which varieties that piva rootstock will dwarf? Truely Tropical has a beautiful Phoenix on a dwarf rootstock  that looks to be about 6 foot tall and maybe 6 feet wide from what i can guess from youtube. She stated it is about ten years old and she received as a gift.
