The Q&A Archives: little gem magnolia

Question: How close to the house can i plant a little gem magnolia. I have seen it planted next to a fence with a trellis to shape it out. It looks absolutely beautiful. I would like to plant it along the west side of my house. Will it hurt the foundation of the house?

Answer: Ginger,

Sorry for the delayed reply. Little Gem grow to about 10-15 feet wide. Keep it 8 feet or more from the house and you should be fine.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
