|Is it OK to plant a King Kong Orchid Tree near the foundation of my house? Like 3'-4' away? I don't know anyone who has one to ask. My concern is, how invasive are the roots? Thank you for your time.|
That is pretty close for any plant. However it is possible to go in with a shovel and push it down to cut the roots around the fountain to about 8-10 inches deep periodically (once or twice a year). This will prevent surface roots from forming which are the ones that grow in diameter and threaten masonry and concrete structures.
