Dracaena grows outside in zones 10 and 11 and zone 9 with protection. My research shows the roots are not invasive and can safely be grown near a home but it does need growing room. They can reach 15 feet when grown outside with a 3 to 4 foot width. So it should be about 3 feet from the building at least. They do need indirect light however.
