A perennial underground stem, producing leafly s?ems or flower stems from year to year; a rhizome.
A variety whose vigorous roots are used as the foundation for a budded rose. The use of rootstocks allows varieties that would not grow on their own roots to be propagated commercially.
The lower portionsof a plant that is capable of being grafted on to.
the root portion of a plant onto which the scion is grafted; also under stock
root bearing plant which the scion is grafted.
the part of a perennial plant near the soil surface where roots and shoots originate.
a short, erect, swollen structure at the junction of the root and shoot systems of a plant (loosely: the root system).
the root part of the vine
The roots and stems arise from this part of the plant.
The roots of a vine.
The roots used in a graft.
A subterranean sem, or part of one.
The lower, rooting part of a grafted vine.
The mass of roots which absorb food for a plant.
Sometimes called "stock," this is the root system (plant) propagated from seed (seedling) or vegetatively as common in clonal rootstocks on which various cultivars are budded or grafted. Many rootstocks are used and possess traits that relate to anchorage, size control, tolerance of light and heavy soils, "wet feet", specific nematodes and other plants and diseases.
a horizontal plant stem with shoots above and roots below serving as a reproductive structure
root or part of a root used for plant propagation; especially that part of a grafted plant that supplies the roots

Part of a grafted plant which supplies the roots.
In a graft, the plant that will provided the roots.
A plant, usually of superior hardiness, used to provide roots for a grafted plant.
A very short, but often thick stem, growing vertically at or just above the surface of the gravel. Often referred to as the Crown.
Originally vines were grafted onto disease resistant American clumps of roots (rootstock) to combat phylloxera, however most new vineyard plantings now are done with grafted material. Choice of rootstock can also affect yield.
The rooting portion of a plant. The fruiting portion of the grapevine, known as a scion, can be grafted onto the rootstock. Grafted vines display certain resistance and growing characteristics based upon the kind of rootstock used. The most important characteristic of certain rootstocks is resistance to the phylloxera louse, but additional characteristics include ripening times, drought resistance, and varying degrees of vigor.
the rooted portion of a plant or a root on which one or more scions are worked
Wine grapes cannot be grown on their own roots in most parts of the world, due to lack of resistance to certain soil pests. They are grafted onto various rootstock hybrids that are resistant to the pests. Additionally, the hybrids are chosen for other beneficial traits, such as low or high vigor, drought resistance, etc.
The basal, root-carrying part of a plant on which another plant can be grafted. The term is also used to refer simply to the crown and root system as a unit; and it is sometimes loosely used as a synonym for underground rhizome.
a swollen root together with the whole or a portion of a very short stem.
same as a rhizome.
The trunk or root material to which buds or scions are inserted in grafting. See stock.
The root upon which the scion is grafted. .
an underground stem or rhizome; lower portion of a graft which develops into the root system. Synonyms: rhizome, rootstalk
hybrid roses are grafted onto a host set of roots. The rootstock is selected for strength and hardiness. The roses that bloom from a rootstock are not the most desirable for most rose gardeners.
On grafted plants, the portion that is chosen for the qualities of it's root system. It will be grafted onto the scion.
Vigorous plant used to provide the plant root system in grafting
A term applied to miscellaneous types of underground stems or parts.
the root onto which a scion or bud is grafted or budded.
A horizontal, underground stem; rhizome.
A plant part on which a bud or scion is budded or grafted and that forms the root system.
Root system of a more common or hardy variety that is used to graft a more desirable variety onto, usually roses and/or standard forms.
The bottom of the American vine onto which the European vine is grafted, in order to give vitis vinifera stronger roots.
In connection with grafting, this is the portion of the root system of a vine onto which the scion, or shoot, is attached.
The root system of the grapevine to which a fruiting vine of any desired variety, such as merlot, cabernet sauvignon, etc., can be grafted.
A rootstock is a stump, which already has an established, healthy root system, used for grafting a cutting from another plant. The tree part being grafted onto the rootstock is usually called the scion. The scion is the plant which has the properties desired by the propagator, and the rootstock is the working part which interacts with the soil to nourish the new plant.
