The rooting system of an Indian Hawthorne shrub.
How deep does the Indian Hawthorne shrub rooting system go? I want to pull out 3 of these bushes that are too big for the area but don\\\'t want to get into a real difficult job. Have dug up and moved many azalea plants (shallow roots) but never an Indian Hawthorne. Is it a huge job? They are about 10 years old, 3 feet high, 4 feet across. Thanks for any advice. The specific question is: how deep is the rooting system of an Indian Hawthorne?

These shrubs are commonly planted close to a building or foundation, which is an indicator that their root system is shallow and non-invasive. This shrub will not be very difficult to remove.
