What is the root spread like when planting this in the ground? Wondering if I can safely plant a couple feet from my house without plumbing root problems...in San Diego?

Abutilons are very easy to grow both inside and outside. They will bloom repeatedly all year in my moderate zone 9B with the heaviest flushes being in the early summer. Many of these will withstand some frost. Hummingbirds adore this plant.

Here they will grow into a small tree if pruned to do so or a very large bush.

Red Monarch is sold in my area as a very red, large flowered Abutilon. I have seen it listed online at Kartuz as being gold. I have never seen a gold one with a similar name.
