I have two 18-24" Joel's that are covered with fruit every year.  On their own roots...
Joel is apparently self-fertile or one of my other Prunus serves as a good pollinator (growing Nankings and Korean cherries)

The Meader varieties, Jan, Joy, and Joelle, are actually species of plums and are graft compatible on plum stocks like St. Julian.  Grow a stock 5 or 6 feet tall and graft the bush cherries on the top like a tree rose and you may get fruit.  That puts them up where air circulation  reduces disease on the blossoms.
