Little gem - I noticed that the little gem is planted very close to the house. Is there a concern about the roots damaging the structure? We are looking to plant something right against a wall for privacy but not take up all the planter space. Thank you!!!!

Little Gem is an ornamental tree and the roots will not damage the house foundation. We have been using LGM Espalier applications so long and never had any issues reported back to us. They are trained to grow flat on the wall ad needs a support with trellis so you can keep flat as it grows..

except the seat wal ( Seat wall is mortared)l I used everything as Dry-laid Oklahoma multicolor chopped stone for the edging and Flagstone for the patio areas in this project. Thank you so much for nice comments.

They are knock out roses . This one is dark pink one which is also called red Knock out rose because flowers are pretty dark pink , almost red when they first open.
They also come in baby pink, yellow and rainbow.
I hope this helps
Thanks ,

Little Gem Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora ‘Little Gem’) A prince among trees, this dwarf southern magnolia has lustrous dark green leaves that are cinnamon colored underneath, making them very popular in holiday decorations. Although this is an evergreen tree, it is perhaps most loved for its abundant and fragrant white flowers in spring. Each bloom can be up to 4 inches across, creating a spectacular show. The species is much too large for small gardens, but the dwarf Little Gem is a good option, maturing at 7 to 10 feet wide. If that is still too wide, consider training it as an espalier as you would a camellia.
