Gem Magnolia Root Growth

I am considering planting an espaliered Little Gem Magnolia and want to know the expected root growth, space is limited.

Anne's response:

You can expect the roots of a plant to extend about the diameter of the width of the plant. If the plant is 20 feet wide you can expect the roots to extend 40 feet from the trunk of the tree.
