Tea olive roots

Zone 37321 | Anonymous added on May 19, 2018 | Answered

Ii planted recently a tea olive which I live on the end of my porch for privacy. After 3 weeks I pulled it up. I planted it just next to the sewer cleanout pipe. I had read so many things bout not planting anything near pipes. Since the tea olive can grow up to several feet high (only preferred 8 - 10 feet I was afraid roots would grow into the line. I cannot find any info about how aggressive these roots are. Any input or advice?
