Can Rose of Sharon Shrubs Be Planted Right Next to House?

Can the roots of a rose of sharon shrub do damage to basement cinder block walls? I have 2 large ones planted next to house that have been there for years, and somebody said I should remove them, but I didn't think roots of a shrub could damage basement walls.

The root system should not harm anything. Be aware though that these shrubs can be a bit invasive in certain climates, and if this is the case in your climate, you will need to be diligent about cleaning up seedlings to keep them from over running the area.
