we have planted this mature tree 18\" from our brick home. Does this plant have an evasive root system? Many thanks. 😳👻

The root system does not seem to be invasive, however the shrub can span up to 12 feet wide. So the problem will be keeping it manageable so close to the house. If you can manage to keep it pruned, then you may have no trouble, but I would recommend planting it a few feet from the wall at least. Just do your best to keep it pruned up.

Here is an article for more information on the shrub: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/yesterday-today-tomorrow/yesterday-today-tomorrow-plant.htm
