I rolled out 45 HP Procurves switches on, was not aware of the Span Tree root port. I assume my core should have the lowest span tree root. How do i go back and check span tree root port?

Yes, but perhaps also prepare a backup root-switch (if root is set index 0, then set backup index to 1)
Show span at CLI should reveal status.
Eventually you could trace the root:
start from core. Neibours: SHow LLDP Info Remote
If you just enable spanning tree with default (=index 8, 8x4096=32768) then the switch with lowest MAC-address would 'win'.
