Q.Can Escallonia Be Planted In Planters?

Zone Ocean Park, 98640 | Anonymous added on June 16, 2021 | Answered

Our septic drainfield is in our front yard. We want to plant escallonia for a hedge, but don’t know if it’s a safe plant for around septic/drainfield. So, we are considering (8)large planters to create a hedge. Unless the root system will not affect the septic/drainfield.
