We have a 24 foot above ground pool that is partially set under ground and my husband bought some Indian Hawthorne shrubs to plant around outside of pool. Will the roots from these shrubs grow through the side of the pool?

The low-growing, dense nature of the Indian hawthorn makes it ideal for foundation plantings as a large-scale ground cover or as a low, informal hedge or divider. I would plant them at least 3 feet away from your pool or a foundation.
